We have been named one of the top 100 Social Enterprises in the UK in the NatWest Bank SE100 Index and Social Business Awards.
AND WE COULDN'T BE PROUDER!
We entered the competition earlier this year and put it to the back of our minds. We knew that we had done a good job with the application, highlighting our strengths as well as our plans for the future. However, the competition was going to be tough as there are so many brilliant Social Enterprises out there!
Then the news came through that we had been named one of the top 100 UK Social Enterprises!
We genuinely went into a bit of shock for a couple of minutes, wondering if what we were seeing was real! And then we screamed a little!
This award means so much to us and, without wishing to sound like we are giving an Oscars acceptance speech, we wouldn't have recieved this honor without the unfailing support of our Customers, Shareholders and Friends. So, it's a well done to each and everyone of us.
