The Crichton Trust claimed the Outstanding Social Enterprise award at the annual DG Business Awards for 2020 last week.
An awards dinner usually takes place at Easterbrook Hall and was originally scheduled to take place in March 2020. Due to the current restrictions, a virtual ceremony, hosted by Lee Medd, Business Development Manager at DG Chamber, went ahead of Friday 6 November instead.
It was a great night for The Crichton Trust and for other members of The Crichton Community who claimed awards on the night.
The Crichton Trust was the winner of the Outstanding Social Enterprise award, while Qubiti claimed the Most Promising New Business award and Genesis Occupational Health Service was recognised as the winner of the Outstanding Business (with under 25 employees) award.
In what has been a difficult year for all organisations and individuals, The Crichton Trust was delighted to be recognised in these awards and to see other colleagues and partners receiving recognition for the work they do too. Twelve awards were awarded on the night including awards for retail, customer service, family businesses and young entrepreneurs.
The Crichton Trust was also pleased to have sponsored the Tourism award for 2020, which was awarded to the Wigtown Book Festival for the significant contribution they make to tourism in Dumfries & Galloway. Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival and the Galloway Activity Centre were also recognised and congratulated for their outstanding contribution to tourism locally.
The Crichton Trust would like to congratulate all the winners and finalists and thank Dumfries & Galloway Chamber of Commerce for hosting the event and providing the community with a well-needed boost.
We look forward to welcoming you all to Easterbrook Hall for future events.
In the meantime, look out for the full list of winners and presentation photos from DG Chamber.
