Social Saturday 2017

On Saturday 14th October Social Saturday took place throughout the UK to raise awareness of the work of social enterprises. Organised by Social Enterprise UK, the key message of Social Saturday is to encourage consumers to ‘Buy Social’ by swapping a regular purchase for one from a social enterprise and create positive social impact.

CAN Social Saturday 2017

This year’s campaign grew from 60 events last year to over 100 events in London, Lincolnshire, Scarborough, Northern Ireland and Swansea to name a few.

The flagship event took place at Borough Market where a range of social enterprises promoted their products to the public, including Change Please, an organisation on the CAN³ programme.

CAN took part in the event by sharing a series of images* on social media to showcase the variety of social enterprises with office space in its Mezzanines:

SIB SS

Economic Change SS

Charity Futures SS

MRI SS

Shared Assets SS
