Lois said: “Going to The Small Awards final was incredible – there was a real energy in the room as everyone was so proud to be a finalist.

“It was a real celebration of small businesses from around the UK.

“Sue Perkins was a fantastic host, chatting to nominees – and even having selfies taken with them!

“We went to the event with no expectations at all – so I was really shocked when I heard our name read out as the winner.

“Exceptional customer service has always been at the heart of what we do. And this award belongs to the Hetty & Betty team – they should be really proud.”

In its eighth year, The Small Awards is a nationwide search for the smallest and greatest firms in the UK, across all sectors, and is organised by Small Business Britain.

This year’s event was judged by a panel of leading enterprise experts.

Guests were also treated to a display of entertainment by Europe’s largest gay male choir, the London Gay Men’s Chorus, along with fine food and drink from independent caterers.
