Pride of Reading Awards
The 15th Pride of Reading awards have been launched on May 4th. Sponsors and supporters gathered to drink cocktails and toast the launch at the Malmaison in Reading.
Host Robert Kenny of Breeze also told the audience about the theme for 2018, ‘International Reading’ which celebrates the town’s links worldwide through business, communities, and culture.
This year there are 17 categories including a new category - the Stronger Together Employer Award sponsored by Reading UK CIC, and two categories, Smile of the Year and Entrepreneur, will return.
Smile of the Year – the story that made Reading smile - will be an online-only award voted for by the public and hosted by InYourArea.
Meanwhile, Huntswood, a specialist resourcing, and consultancy firm in governance, risk, and compliance based in Abbey Gardens, will sponsor Entrepreneur of the Year.
The Pride of Reading Awards Lunch will take place on Friday, November 2 at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre. To nominate and see a full list of categories and sponsors, please go to www.porawards.co.uk.
