More than 350 people attended the first-ever North West LGBTQ+ Business Awards held in Wirral, organised by Drew Cockton and sponsored by Liverpool FC.
Businesses from across the North West region came together to support the achievements of the LGBTQ+ community in commerce and industry after a difficult 18 months for all.
Knowsley Chamber was delighted to be a part of the awards, with Lesley Martin-Wright on the judging panel, and Chamber Members The Forshaw Group nominated for the Diversity & Inclusion Award.
Lesley Martin-Wright, CEO of Knowsley Chamber said “When Knowsley Chamber first heard that the LGBTQ+ awards were being organised the Board of Directors immediately decided to fully support Drew Cockton and the team. I am so delighted that The Forshaw Group picked up the Investment in People award and it’s great recognition for the amazing work they are doing.”
The event itself was high energy, with a full dance floor, a Shirley Bassey tribute and a brilliant four-course meal provided by Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa.
We were delighted when The Forshaw Group won the well-deserved Investment in People Award.
