Businesses across the region were recognised at the annual Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards on Friday, 13th October, held in Rotherham.
This year’s awards saw 14 businesses, charities and individuals honoured at the prestigious awards ceremony, as they battled against a shortlist of 5 in each category.
Cannon Hall Farm, located near Barnsley, was crowned the Universal Components Business of the Year, after triumphing over the evenings competition.
The ceremony, hosted by BBC Radio Sheffield’s Andy Giddings, was held at Magna with 480 guests in attendance to celebrate the achievements of the shortlisted individuals and organisations, sponsored by RNN Group.
The evenings individual awards were presented to Jacob Fox of Berneslai Homes, winner of the Apprentice of the Year award and Allan Ogle of Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids who picked up the Business Person of the Year award. The Chamber presented a special Lifetime Achievement award to Edward Naylor of Naylor Industries PLC for his hard work and devotion to the local community.
Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive, Andrew Denniff said; “As always the evening was superb, reflecting all that is best in our Region. My congratulations go out to all of our winners and especially Cannon Hall Farm, the Business of the Year.
“Our guests can certainly say they were part of the “evening of the year” in the Sheffield City Regions business calendar and all our shortlisted entrants can congratulate themselves in contributing to another successful event.”
This year also saw the Chamber present their Charity of the Year award, sponsored by Fortem, to City Hearts UK, who received £3,000 prize money and will become this year’s Chamber Charity of the Year.
