A Stowmarket company has been awarded the much sought after Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday Award.

Priority Driver Training, a company that trains professional drivers to work-legal standard, was specially selected by the Dragon’s Den star to receive the award.

The Small Business Sunday (SBS) Award is a social media-driven initiative designed to raise the profile of small businesses.

Every Monday at 8pm, Mr Paphitis rewards small businesses that tweet him @TheoPaphitis and describe their businesses in one tweet including the hashtag #SBS.

Six winners are then reviewed and retweeted on Mr Paphitis’ Twitter account, which has over 500,000 followers.
