This week, Christine and Deborah represented team Keybury at the Keighley and Airedale Business Awards Launch event. The awards have been running for almost a decade and we’ve been lucky enough to attend and even win in these local prestigious awards in the past.
Keybury were crowned “Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year” in the year these awards were launched. We have also sponsored the “Employer of the year” awards and been highly commended for “Excellence in Corporate, Social & Environmental Responsibilty” at another of these annual awards ceremonies. The pandemic has seen them put on hold in recent times, so we’re excited to see them back in the town for 2022.
It was inspiring to hear from other local companies, including the Wellbeing Lounge, Bronte Bars, Airedale Centre and Rotherwood Recruitment who have won and sponsored these awards in the past. The speakers told incredible tales of lockdown survival. They spoke highly of the town and encouraged everyone to support the awards. These local business people spoke passionately about the Keighley, it’s people and it’s businesses. Our company is always championing our home town. It’s always encouraging to hear others doing the same. It was wonderful to meet old friends and several of our own customers at the launch event, including Aireworth Vets and Marketing with Purpose.
The Keighley & Airedale Business Awards promises to provide a much needed boost to local businesses in the town, as well as a huge celebration at the awards ceremony itself.
