OPTICIAN chain Specsavers was crowned a double winner while Thursfield Solicitors took outstanding team of the year at the annual Solihull Excellence Awards.
The annual Excellence Awards are run by Solihull Business Improvement District ( BID) and were held at St Johns Hotel.
They celebrate businesses and individuals across eight categories.
Specsavers’ town branch won the corporate social responsibility project award for its ‘ 25 in 25’ campaign while the trainee award went to Kiran Kaur who is learning to be a dispensing optician.
The 25 in 25 initiative supported 25 local grass- roots projects throughout 2018.
Specsavers was also highly commended in the outstanding team category.
Solihull BID’s director Melanie Palmer said: “The Excellence Awards continue to go from strength to strength and have become an annual celebration and showcase for the breadth of talent and innovation in Solihull town centre.
“We have an unrivalled two square miles of success in the town centre and these awards provide the perfect opportunity to show the rest of the region why Solihull is simply the best.”
