Red Rose Awards: Mosaic encourages firms to enter

Mosaic Community Care, founded by Young’un Claire Fryer and winner of the last year’s Lancashire Business View Publisher's Choice Award, is to sponsor the carer friendly employer of the year at the Red Rose Awards 2013.

With just three weeks left before nominations close and judging begins, Claire said: “We are delighted to join the sponsors of the Red Rose Awards and in particular, to be supporting a category that highlights Mosaic's established reputation of caring excellence.

“Since winning the Publisher's Choice Award, Mosaic can testify to the importance of awards to the morale of the team whilst raising the profile of our business. The business community remains the lifeblood of the Lancashire economy and it is hugely rewarding to be able to promote and celebrate the successes achieved within our local area.”

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.
