Go-ahead companies and executives are being invited to enter the 2018 Warrington Business Awards, by its chairman, Watsons Solicitors partner, Danny Hudson.
A leading Warrington law firm, Watsons Solicitors is also sponsoring the Businesswoman of the Year category.
Entries are now open for the prestigious awards, whose winners will be announced on June 8.
The initiative will support the Tim Parry Jonathan Ball Peace Foundation, in the 25thanniversary year of the Warrington bombings.
Danny Hudson is a keen supporter of business networking, having previously run the Warrington First group for 10 years.
He said: “Winning a Warrington Business Award brings prestige, press coverage and extensive professional business contacts.
“This is a not for profit event, organised by a group of volunteers, and we have a panel of 30 to 40 very credible judges, ranging from MPs to company owners and directors.
“There are 12 categories, so hopefully something for everyone that wishes to enter.”
He added: “Watsons decided to sponsor the Businesswoman of the Year category, because we know there are plenty of female leaders out there whose successes have so far have gone unrecognised. We’re expecting a good number of entries.”
Watsons Solicitors, which has been established for more than 50 years, specialises in family law, employment law, and conveyancing.
Previously run by a local newspaper, the awards were relaunched in 2015 as a not for profit organisation by a group of businesspeople.
