Abbott-Wade have been recognised as a great family business – so much so infact that we have been nominated as finalists to represent the Northwest at The National Family Business Awards at Wembley at a ceremony to be held on 15th July.
Now in their 8th year, the awards were founded to recognise and celebrate the achievements of Britain and Ireland’s family-owned businesses and the entrepreneurs who lead them. Abbott-Wade are one of over 3 million family firms in the UK and Ireland so to be nominated is a huge honour.
“Every year we are blown away by the variety and calibre of family businesses who enter the awards. Few people realise that every time they visit their local hairdresser, stay in a boutique hotel, buy a bottle of wine, have a necklace made or buy cheese in the supermarket that they are in fact supporting passionate, dedicated families who have set up in business together. They might be hundreds of years old or new kids on the block. These awards are our chance to say ‘thank you’ and give recognition for their contribution.” – Amalia Brightley-Gillott, Awards Director
