We Fix Alloys – Small Business Sunday winners 30th December 2012

Small Business Sunday We Fix Alloys Winners

Small Business Sunday, shortened to the hashtag #SBS on Twitter, was created by Theo Paphitis in October 2010. Each week Theo rewards small businesses that tweet him @TheoPaphitis and describe their business in one tweet including the all-important hashtag #SBS. Only tweets made in the time slot between 5.00 PM and 7.30 PM each Sunday count. Every Sunday, Theo reviews and chooses his favourite lucky six who are then re-tweeted.  Every Sunday, more take part and the odds get harder…

We have been taking part in #SBS for over a year – not every week as it’s hard to keep that motivation going but as any small business will attest motivation and perseverance are key to your successes.

We are pleased to announce that on 30th December 2012 we became part of the elite family of SBS Winners. We get our own profile on Theo’s site and access to his knowledge and advice.  I suspect that’s only the start of it!

Within seconds our twitter feed went crazy and we are already booking in extra work for the New Year.

What a way to end 2012 and to bring in a great New 2013 for We Fix Alloys

Thanks so much to all our family and friends – we couldn’t have done this without you and your support


This is the tweet that made it

Project May-hem – this months special offer!

Hi guys,

As many of you will know, we support a number of local charities. One of which is called I-Can, they are a food charity whose aim is provide those in need with basic food requirements, namely cans.

We spent quite some time with one of the charity’s organisers, Austen Hempstead, and after listening to how widespread food poverty is, we decided to try and do something to help.

So, this month our special offer to you, Project May-hem, is about helping those who need it most.

For every can of food that is donated by any of our customers we will deduct £1 from your bill. This could mean you get up to a 20% discount as well as making a huge difference to someone’s life. You may not be planning to have your alloys wheels repaired just yet, however, we are more than happy to ‘bank’ the deduction for a time more suitable to you.

Every can that is donated will be delivered to I-Can by We Fix Alloys and then they will distribute to local families. Please visit their website to find out more here or you can chat to them and us on twitter @icanfeed and @wefixalloys

I know how difficult times are for everyone in the current climate, however, I’m sure you can help us help…….

Best regards

Chris Wild
