Kath Boullen, Chief Executive of St Helens Chamber commented: “We are thrilled to have so many local businesses enjoying success at the regional heats.

“We know that we have a very high calibre of businesses in our Borough, which is why we introduced the St Helens Business Awards this year as a way to celebrate local business and give our Members the opportunity to highlight their success on a national stage.

“We are delighted to see that winning our local awards has given these businesses the stepping stone to go on and win at the regional heats and we wish all four companies the best of luck as they now go on to compete at the national finals in London.

“I would also like to thank all the sponsors of the St Helens Awards, and the judges, who all gave fantastic support for our event in May.”

Francis Martin, President of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) added: “Businesses are the engines of the UK economy – creating opportunities and prosperity in our towns, cities and counties. Even in these turbulent times, they continue to show their adaptability, resilience and strength.

“Every year our judges are impressed by the calibre of entries, and this year was no different. All our finalists should be proud to reach this stage given the stiff competition among our diverse and enterprising pool of applicants.

“The Chamber Business Awards are the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate our business communities’ achievements, to take stock of the great performances of UK businesses over the past year, and to encourage and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.”
