JUDGES have selected 48 businesses, organisations and charities as finalists in the third Hyndburn Business Awards.
This year’s competition prompted more nominations than ever before and the presentation evening at Accrington Town Hall on Tuesday, June 19 promises to be packed.
A new award, the Evonne Harwood Event of the Year, which will be presented by the Accrington Observer, had nine finalists and was contested through the Hyndburn Business Awards’ Facebook page, where visitors were asked to select the winner.
Rob Carder, from organisers Enterprising People said: “There are 17 awards to be presented on the night, including the Evonne Harwood, the Pride of Hyndburn and the Beacon award that all companies aspire to win. This competition has really gone from strength to strength and we are delighted with how popular the awards have been.”
The Beacon Award will be presented to the overall winner, the business which the judging panel consider to be a beacon of inspiration from all the entries and the finalists will be announced on the night.
