The first Made in UK Day took place on March 9. Organised by Make it British, the day aimed to celebrate UK makers.
On Twitter, the #madeinukday trended fifth in the UK on the day and had a total reach of 3.8 million people – 25% of which were overseas.
Founder of Make it British, Kate Hills, said: “A big thank you to everyone that supported the day. It was wonderful to see so many brands and manufacturers getting involved.
“What was even better was hearing about all of the sale that UK makers made on the day.”
Make It British, a community of UK-made brands and manufacturers, was formed on March 9, 2011. Now Made in the UK Day will become a regular event, taking place on March 9 each year.
