News: Shortlist announced for Chamber awards


The finalists have been announced for the Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards, this year hosted by Rotherham's World Cup referee, Howard Webb MBE.

The Awards, hosted by Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, will recognise the achievements of the region's top businesses at Barnsley Metrodome on October 17 and is supported this year by local business, Solar Europa.

Over 100 entries were once again submitted for the prestigious awards, which will see companies and individuals recognised in ten categories as well as the overall Business of the Year.

Andrew Denniff, chief executive of Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, said: "Our return to Barnsley for one of the leading events on our calendar has met with a tremendous response. Not only have the numbers of entries exceeded our expectations, but the quality has meant short-listing for our judges has made for some difficult decision making, even before the winners are selected."

The ceremony will also include the Salute to Business presentations that celebrates the achievements of long-standing businesses up to 100 years old. Also for the first time will be the Charity of the Year presentation which will award a member Charity £3000 in prize money.
