Pride of St Helens Business Awards

Halton and St Helens VCA were very proud to sponsor one of the awards at the inaugural Pride of St Helens Business Awards, which were organised by Invest in St Helens (in partnership with the Steve Prescott Foundation and the St Helens Star). .

The evening was a tremendous success as representatives from public, private and voluntary organisations gathered at the Totally Wicked Stadium (home of St Helens legendary rugby league team) to celebrate local success stories. With a fun casino, excellent musical performances and a host from Sky Sports, it was an evening full of glamour and entertainment.

The award we sponsored was “The Community Impact Award” and there were 3 superb nominees: Apex Trust, Co-op Lea Green Distribution Centre and Groundwork. We’d like to offer heartfelt congratulations to Groundwork who won the award.

Kim Hughes, Apex Trust CEO stated “we were already winners in being selected as 1 of 3 finalists for this award.  On behalf of Apex Trust staff, trustees and volunteers past and present, we are thrilled to have been selected and recognised for the work and support we offer to a marginalised client group, facing many barriers”.

Congratulations to everyone who was involved in the evening for delivering an event which made everyone proud to be working or living in St Helens and successfully raised the profile of the town.
