J&PR help celebrate success of Shropshires businesses for children

Shropshire’s businesses for children have been honoured at a glittering award ceremony and the J&PR team are extremely proud to have once again shown their support for the event.

In its third year, the 2016 Businesses for Children Awards ceremony, held at the Park Inn Hotel in Telford, was bigger and better than ever – with jazz music, dancing and black tie glamour.

First launched in 2014 to recognise the hard work of businesses and organisations across Shropshire which educate, support and provide services and products to children and young people there were 12 awards up for grabs this year.

And, here at J&PR we were the very proud sponsors of the New Business for Children and Young People award.

Won by Katie Millard, owner of the Baby Bird Cafe in Oswestry, this award recognised the success of new businesses in Shropshire launched after 2014.

Having worked with many new start-up businesses through our one-to-one mentoring sessions we know how hard it can be to get a successful business off the ground.

It takes hard work, commitment and a lot of time so congratulations to Katie and of course all the other finalists in this category – Little Rascals, Epic Fun and Fitness, Bellini’s Box and Jitterbugz.

We would also like to extend our congratulations to the winners of all the other awards and all the finalists.

We had a great time celebrating all of Shropshire’s fantastic businesses and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
