Businesses scooped prizes last night (10th November) at the largest South Holland Business Awards to date.
Hosted by Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and headline sponsor, FreshLinc, the awards returned with a bang, nearly doubling in size after a two year break due to the pandemic.
Over 320 guests and 40 businesses attended the event which took place at Springfields Conference & Events Centre in Spalding to celebrate all that is great in South Holland.
Guests were mesmerised by the magic provided by Scott Perry Magician, enjoyed a sparkling drinks reception upon arrival, a three-course meal and of course, the award ceremony itself.
Opening the evening’s celebrations, running through the categories and announcing the winners, was TED Talker and the brains behind the ‘shareacoke’ campaign, Richard Askam.
