Theo Paphitis boosts new North Norfolk walking and glamping holiday company
MarGins wins Small Business Sunday award from entrepreneur
A North Norfolk‐based firm has received a business boost from retail entrepreneur Theo Paphitis, chair of Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue and a self-confessed ‘shopkeeper.’ Last week, Ginny Wilson-North, owner of MarGins, tweeted Theo about her business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by Theo to his 500,000 Twitter followers.
The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has 1700 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK. Theo re‐tweeted Ginny’s message to his more than 500,000 followers and as a result, MarGins had a surge in interest on their website, www.walkandglamp.co.uk. They are also profiled on the #SBS website (www.theopaphitissbs.com) exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.
Ginny said, “We only set up the business in December 2016, so it’s great that we managed to attract Theo’s interest. It’s always tough to raise profile and this is a big boost for us.”
Walking is the perfect way to experience the Norfolk Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. “Our ‘walking and glamping’ holidays are designed to appeal to both dedicated trekkers and casual tourists looking for something a bit different – maybe that’s what appealed to Theo!” says Ginny. “Whatever their level, we try to make sure our guests have the time to relax and take in the breath-taking coastline and all it has to offer.”
Theo Paphitis, said: “We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK. I wish MarGins every success.”
Anyone looking for a re‐tweet from Theo should tweet him about their business on Sunday between 5pm and 7.30pm and include the hashtag #SBS. Six lucky businesses are re‐tweeted every Monday at 8pm and then invited to enter their profile on the new website.
