A group of businesses have come together with County Durham
& Darlington NHS Foundation Trust (CDDFT) Charity, to create
the inaugural 'Celebrating Women in Business' awards taking place
at Hallgarth Hotel & Golf Club on May 4th, 2023.
Compered by local celebrity Emma Hignett, the TV and Radio voice
over artist is also known as 'the voice of London Transport'. The
awards evening will incorporate a fashion show from House of Zana
founder, Amber Kotrr, with special guest speaker Charlotte Staerck,
founder of The Handbag Clinic, this event is set to be a fantastic
addition to the business awards calendar.
Pat Chambers, charity development manager at CDDFT Charity said:
"We are lucky to be supported by so many businesses across
Darlington and County Durham and, after speaking with them we
realized that there was a gap in the market for an awards event
celebrating women in our area.
"This year is the 75th birthday of the NHS, so we're
particularly grateful to be working with Darlington Business Club
and their local business connections, whom are helping to bring the
awards to life. All proceeds are being donated to CDDFT Charity, to
help enhance patient and community care across the Trust's
extensive geographical area."
The event is being held at Hallgarth Hotel & Golf Club with
arrival drink and canapes, a two course meal, fashion show, key
note speakers and of course - the awards themselves! On arrival,
attendees will be able to peruse stalls from local independent
businesses, all being coordinated by Amber Kotrri.
Award entries and nominations are free, via the Darlington
Business Club website, where sponsorship opportunities can also be
found. Categories include: Rising star, Newcomer of the year,
Impact in the community, Inspirational female leader, Innovation in
sustainability, Future leader, and Hidden hero.
Entry closes 10th March 5pm, judged by an independent
panel, with the shortlist announced 24th March.
The organising committee is made up of CDDFT Charity, Hallgarth
Hotel & Golf Club, Darlington Business Club, Peachy Digital,
Amber Kotrri and Resilient Business Solutions.
