Awards launched this week
Awards looking to reward forward-thinking businesses who have outshone rivals or made their community proud have been launched.
The Best of Britain Business Awards 2018 have been unveiled by organiser Love Energy Savings, a price comparison specialist, with a £500 prize for each regional winner.
Phil Foster, managing director of Love Energy Savings, says applications are now open.
He said: “There are some outstanding businesses in the UK doing wonderful things, whether that’s industry-leading innovation, charitable services for the local community, or introducing environmentally green schemes.
“Some firms might be shy about showcasing the incredible work they’re doing, but with Best of Britain 2018, we want to really shout about those achievements.
“Most of all, we’re looking to reward passionate groups or individuals who’ve really made a difference.”
The awards - now into their fourth year - are split into five regions: Wales, Scotland, North of England, South of England and Midlands.
The winners will be invited to a celebratory event at the Love Energy Savings HQ, in Bolton, on September 20.
Mr Foster added: “Last year’s winning businesses were really diverse - from an innovative chocolatier to a firm who’d set up a nanny sharing scheme in London. And previous winners range from a hair and beauty salon to a funeral director.
“The message is simple - it doesn’t matter what it is that you do, if you’re driven to implement real change in your industry, then we want to hear from you.”
The application process runs from July 2 to July 30, after which entries will then be shortlisted. Finalists will be announced August 13 before the winners are unveiled on August 28.
