Last chance for seat at awards cer­e­mony

Macclesfield Express - - BUSI­NESS SME BUSI­NESS TIPS - KAREN BRIT­TON

IT’S the last chance to buy tick­ets for this year’s North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards.

The judg­ing panel has been pick­ing the win­ners in each cat­e­gory for this year’s awards which are tak­ing place for the fifth time to cel­e­brate the cream of the busi­ness com­mu­nity in Mac­cles­field and around the area.

There has been a record num­ber of busi­nesses en­ter­ing this year with firms of all types and sizes en­ter­ing 10 award cat­e­gories and a short­list of fi­nal­ists are wait­ing to find out if they will pick up awards.

The win­ners will be pre­sented at a glit­ter­ing black tie event com­ing up this month at The Mere.

Tick­ets have been sell­ing fast for the pre­sen­ta­tion, din­ner and dance but there is still time to buy tick­ets.

Or­gan­is­ers from the Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce say it’s the per­fect chance to meet peo­ple from other busi­nesses around the area.

Sue Bow­den, man­ager of Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce, urged busi­nesses not to miss out on tick­ets for the night.

She said: “The fi­nal­ists have been short­listed and the fo­cus now is on the gala din­ner.

“The stan­dard and level of en­tries has been out­stand­ing, so the gala din­ner is go­ing to be an ex­cit­ing cul­mi­na­tion of a fan­tas­tic year for the awards.

“This is the last chance for tick­ets so book your ta­ble and join us for what prom­ises to be the big­gest busi­ness event in North East Cheshire.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic black tie event, start­ing at 6.45pm with a cham­pagne re­cep­tion fol­lowed by a three­course din­ner and the awards cer­e­mony.

“And to round off the evening with a cel­e­bra­tory party at­mos­phere, there will be danc­ing and mu­sic from Nathan Turner, then car­riages at 12.30pm. The awards are a fan­tas­tic net­work­ing op­por­tu­nity.”

Guest speaker on the night is James Timp­son OBE who is boss of the fa­mil­iar Timp­son brand which has shops of­fer­ing shoe re­pairs and key cut­ting among its ser­vices.

The night is also a chance to sup­port wellloved Sut­ton char­ity The Rossendale Trust, which cares for adults with learn­ing and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties.

Do­na­tions made on the night and money from a raf­fle and auc­tion will go to the char­ity.

The gala din­ner at The Mere in Knutsford is on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 19.
