PPM Limited nominated for In-Cumbria Business Awards

PPM are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Best Community Involvement award at the annual In-Cumbria Business Awards to be held at the prestigious Halston Aparthotel on Warwick Road, Carlisle, on the 9th November.

The awards, which are run by CN Media Group, celebrate the achievements of Cumbrian businesses and business people, they offer the chance to recognise and reward the great work across the spectrum of commerce and industry in Cumbria. The award categories range from Community Involvement to Best Customer Service and Best Exporter.

The judges have picked 45 finalists from over 200 entries and will identify 15 winners following the judging process which will take place over the next month. The winners will be revealed at the awards evening in November which will be hosted by Amol Rajan, BBC Media Editor and former Editor of The Independent.

Managing Director Gordon McGregor said: “We are very excited and extremely proud to be a Finalist for the Best Community Involvement award. We take great pride and satisfaction in giving back to the communities that we work in and it is something we do because we genuinely want to, not because we feel obliged. We have an incredible resource of knowledge, skills and experience in our staff that we utilise to help with various community projects and local initiatives, it’s not just about giving money”

Congratulations to our fellow finalists for this award, More Handles and Cartmell Shepherd. Best of luck to all of the other finalists.
