Lantei agrees award sponsorship deal

Lantei, the Preston company which specialises in electrical appliance testing and servicing, safety services and surveys, is to sponsor the environmental impact award category at Red Rose Awards 2013.

Managing director Anthony Smith will also sit on the panel of judges as part of the deal. He said: “We are proud to sponsor the Red Rose Awards 2013 and we are very much looking forward to getting stuck in.

“The particular category that we have chosen to sponsor it close to our hearts. As a business we are passionate about ensuring that our clients are able to reduce their carbon footprint and ensure that they are also, as part of doing that , able to operate more efficiently – less waste, less cost to business!

Anthony added: “There are so many positive stories out there; the Red Rose Awards is an fantastic opportunity for the media to focus on industries and businesses who are doing well, rather than hearing about recession and doom and gloom. We wish all of the entrants the best of luck!”

The awards are open to all sizes and types of business. There are 21 categories to ensure the best of the best is recognised on the night, but competition is fierce, as previous years have seen hundreds of entries. The deadline for nominations is January 24.

Winners will be announced at a fantastic event, to be held on March 14 at Blackpool’s Empress Ballroom, which promises great entertainment, company, food, networking, drama and joy.

Red Rose Awards is also backed by Forbes Solicitors, the headline sponsor, and Ashton Hoyle, BAE Systems, Blackburn College, Cassons, Danbro, FSB, Lantei, Laura Hartley Recruitment, Marsden Rawsthorn, Mosaic Community Care, Napthens Solicitors, Peter Scott Printers, Spire Healthcare, WEC Group and Yorkshire Bank.
