16th November 2012
For the second-year running York-based mutual health and wellbeing organisation Benenden Healthcare sponsored the Best Business and Community Link Award at the York Press Business Awards- with the award going to York Marriott at the ceremony which took place last night.
The awards which are now in their 22nd year, celebrates the achievements of the local business community and recognises outstanding businesses throughout the Yorkshire region.
Winners were announced in a diverse range of categories from ‘Small Business of the Year to ‘Best Sustainable Travel Initiative’. The ‘Best Business and Community Link’, sponsored by Benenden Healthcare, recognised organisations which have actively built sustainable links with the local community.
Nick Breton, Head of Product Development & Research said: ‘A community ethos is really important to us at Benenden Healthcare which is why we were delighted to sponsor and judge the Best Business and Community Link award.
‘The category proved to be highly moving and highlighted some excellent examples of the innovative ways businesses are creating sustainable relationships with their communities in the Yorkshire region.
‘All three finalists in the category were very strong contenders, and it was very difficult to pick only one winner from amongst them. York Marriott however particularly impressed us with their work within the community, both in terms of their volunteering and the use of their expertise to help people into work. They set a really great example within the hotel sector in terms of their approach to community work, with a high proportion of their employees getting involved.
‘Congratulations to York Marriott and to all the other finalists and winners of these prestigious awards!’
