Judge, Sarah Tremellen MBE, said: “The quality of entries we received this year has made our job extremely tough. It is fantastic to see such strong evidence of innovative and exciting work being done by local organisations in Leamington Spa.

“Shortlisting was a challenge and I congratulate both the finalists and all those who entered, on the positive work they are doing in our area.”

Winners of the Leamington Business Awards will be revealed at the award ceremony, taking place at the iconic Royal Pump Rooms on the 10th November. As well as celebrating Leamington’s business achievements, the non-profit making event will also raise money for local charity, Helping Hands.

Mark Ashfield, Managing Director of HB&O, said: “This year’s Leamington Business Awards ceremony offers a great opportunity for businesses to support local charity, Helping Hands, through the donation of raffle prizes, or simply by buying tickets to attend. We’d like to hear from organisations who are keen to join our existing sponsors in supporting this event.”
