North West Family Business Awards 2024

The accomplishments of family-owned businesses throughout the region have been celebrated at a special awards event.

Organised by The Family Business Community, the North West Family Business Awards were held at the home of Bolton Wanderers Football Club.

There were 23 awards up for grabs, including sector-specific categories, the People’s Choice and Employee of the Year Awards, which were decided by both public votes and judges' scores.

The awards were once again presented by food writer, broadcaster and proud northerner Nigel Barden along with co-founders of the Family Business Community, Dave Clarkson and Sue Howorth.
