We attended the prestigious Cheshire Business Awards event last Friday, 6th October in Chester Cathedral. This is big annual event sponsored by Trinity Mirror Media.
And as well as being a finalist in the Best Employer category, we won the Judges’ Choice Award, presented at the climax of the evening. This winner is selected every year from all of the entries received, across all categories – this year 150 entries.
The judges said that Rossendale “has a sound business model and is clearly a fantastic employer”. They also said that the Trust has a tremendous impact on the lives of others and on the whole of the community in which it operates.
“The Rossendale Trust are making a real, uplifting difference – to real people’s lives in Cheshire.” said John Thompson, chair of the judges and commercial editor at Trinity Mirror North West.
Winning this award reflects the work that all of our staff do for our tenants, which the judges clearly recognised. It helps to raise our profile and expand awareness of our charity right across the county.
These awards help with fundraising; WorkTaste; Make A Difference days; building a network of partners who support us. They are not just plaques on a wall – they really matter!
Just to say a “big thank-you” to all our staff personally for making this a great place to work and for the excellent job you are doing in supporting our tenants.
