Herald Business Awards
15 April 2012
Alas it wasn't to be our night on Thursday 12th April at the Herald Business Awards but we did have a great night sharing a little of the lime light with the great and good of the Plymouth Business community.
The Award in our Spirit of Enterprise category went to Lee Duke of Chasing Paper who was a deserved winner, having grown a very interesting and worthwhile waste recycling business helping integrate disadvantaged young people into the work place. Well done Lee! He was really chuffed to get the award as were all the winners.
We learned alot about the business community in Plymouth and saw many years of hard work pay off for the winner of business of year txtnation. It was inspiring to see family businesses beavering away over many years to create and maintain sustainable companies. It was also good to be part of an evening honouring and celebrating the work of Peter Vosper who won the Life Time Achievement Award.
We enjoyed great food provided by Riverford Organics which included a selection of vegetables which are not always appreciated and can be hard to find in some English restaurants - our interest in all things health related makes it appropriate that we were able to enjoy some greens!
Thanks to Outset Plymouth who sponsored the Spirit of Enterprise Award and made us feel very welcome.
and to Kevin Kelway who helped capture the evening for us with these great pictures.
