A physical and digital signage company picked up Business of the Year at the Trent and Dove Housing Impact on the Community awards.
Hardy Signs were presented the award by by Kriss Akabusi MBE, former Olympian and world champion gold medalist with Team GB at the event held at Pirelli Stadium.
The firm were commended for their community and charity support, raising over £1,000 for Burton YMCA and Burton Addiction Centre, raised £10,000 towards NHS Burton Queens Hospital and collected donations for Burton Mail’s ‘Feed the Families’ campaign for the YMCA.
Recently, some of the team at the firm have signed up for a charity sleep-out and have upped their fundraising goal.
The award comes as another win for the firm, as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Chief executive of Trent & Dove Housing, Ursula Bennion, said “It was a fantastic evening and as always hugely compelling and inspirational to hear the stories of people, organisations and local businesses who are doing wonderful things in our area.
"We host the event to recognise those working tirelessly in our communities, who selflessly go out of their way to help others.
"I would like to thank all of our partners who sponsored the fantastic event. Without their generosity it would not be possible to reward the sterling work that individuals and community groups do.”
