Shortlist announced for the Selnet Enterprise In Society Awards 2018

 

After a flurry of nominations, the shortlist has now been announced for the Selnet Enterprise In Society Awards 2018. The winners will be announced at a glitzy dinner at Blackpool’s Devere hotel on May 4th with entertainment on the evening from Britain’s Got Talent finalist, James Edgington and his band Off The Edge.

 

Companies that work for the social good have applied for the awards from across Lancashire, including Blackpool, Skelmersdale, Blackburn and central Lancashire. And the work they undertake to benefit the community includes helping vulnerable people, improving the local environment, projects that help ex-offenders, women in society and the arts.

 

Now a panel of judges have the painstaking task of choosing a winner in each category, including deciding on Lancashire’s Social Enterprise of the Year and its Social Enterprise Champion.

 

Lancashire’s social enterprise awards are different than other similar business awards as they also reward the army of volunteers who are the lifeblood of the third sector.

 

Selnet chief executive, Liz Tapner, said: “It is the highlight of our year and a great achievement for all those who have been shortlisted to be recognised for their work.

 

“The awards dinner is a great opportunity for networking, catching up with partner organisations and meeting key people in the sector so I urge everyone to get their tickets now.”
