Last Thursday 15th November The Morgan Awards 2012 took place and I was very excited as Love Frocks was up for New Business Award.
The glittering gala Awards ceremony held at Carden Park Hotel, Chester.
The winners and runners-up in the seven categories won a total of £115k in cash prizes as well as a package of professional services. The Awards were open to charities, social enterprises, businesses and entrepreneurs from Merseyside, Cheshire, Shropshire, North Wales and the Wolverhampton area.
The categories for awards were best young entrepreneur, best entrepreneurial charity or social enterprise, best individual entrepreneur working in a charity or social enterprise, small charity or social enterprise making best social contribution, charity or social enterprise making best social contribution, best new business (which I was in) and finally against all odds.
It was a wonderful night with a champagne reception and three course meal and too be honest it was nice just to be apart of the night and to wear a long dress ha ha!
I am very pleased to announce that Love Frocks came 2nd in the Best New Business Category and I was awarded with a cheque for £5000. I was over the moon!
I met some amazing people through-out the whole audition process and hearing the stories of some of the candidates was very emotional and just makes me grateful for everything I have achieved and really appreciate being able to do a job that I love.
It has given me an extra boost and hopefully we lead to lots of exciting times ahead for Love Frocks.
