You will have read in previous news items that Stanair support the SME National Awards. We’ve been delighted to have seen these great awards grow from their launch to the high profile final event ceremonies.
The 31st March was host to the glittering SME Buckinghamshire Awards, which were held at the Double Tree in Milton Keynes. Guests were treated to a fine three course dinner and entertained by West End opera singers, who had fooled everyone under the disguise of members of staff. The awards then got underway, with 47 businesses making it to the finals across the awards categories.
“As a judge on the panel for nominations we were overwhelmed with the amount of applications and the quality of the businesses submitting them.” says Wayne Thompson, Milton Keynes Depot Manager at Stanair. “It has been wonderful to see so many successful businesses thriving in Buckinghamshire, and it felt great to celebrate their achievements.”
As well as sponsoring the event, Stanair were also invited to present a number of awards on the night – the Community Business of the Year and Employee of the Year. Both were won by The Princes Centre. Wayne was thrilled to present both awards and certificates to winners and runners up, along with having a photograph taken to commemorate their achievements.
“The whole event has been an absolute triumph from start to finish.” said Wayne. “It feels fantastic to be a part of such an event and Stanair are proud to be based in such a thriving county.”
