The Washington Group have reached the final, in three categories, of the Wyred Up Business Awards 2019:
- Corporate Social Responsibility Award,
- Community and Charity Organisation of the Year and
- Outstanding Woman of the Year (for our partnership International Women’s Day Festival 2019 Team)
Wyred Up is a FREE networking group for businesses and organisations located in Wyre or who contribute to Wyre’s economy. Members can attend 4 free events a year, network and share best practice. Wyred Up was established in 2008 to encourage local companies to trade with each other. Over the last 11 years Wyred Up has evolved into one of the most successful networking groups on the Fylde Coast. It has an excellent reputation and a varied membership.
Deborah Terras Director, of The Washington Group, said, ‘We are very honoured to be amongst some outstanding companies as finalists. We are particularly pleased to be in these three categories, each one demonstrates our commitment to working within communities. In particular, Outstanding Woman of the year Award, highlighting the hard work of our IWD Committee and volunteers to make the 1st ever International Women’s Day Festival, such a success. The Festival brought together businesses and role models from across Wyre, Fylde and Blackpool linking with High schools across the three areas.
We are looking forward to the awards ceremony on Thursday 5th December at Marine Hall.
Good luck to all the finalists.
