Cash prizes and investment grants will be handed out to winners of this year’s BIBAs.
In light of the financial challenges faced by so many businesses in Lancashire during the pandemic, we have decided to use the profits from our awards’ ceremony to support many of our winners.
We have never made a profit of any of our ceremonies with funding normally channelled in to our BIBAs Foundation, which has recently received an £18,000 cash injection to support enterprising projects for young people across the county.
Chamber Chief Executive Babs Murphy said: “We all know the last 12 months has led to a lot of financial hardship among businesses and we have responded to do our part.
“By giving cash prizes to our winners, we hope to do our bit to provide some support to them.
“We are able to do this as we do not make a profit from our awards which allows us to be able to support Lancashire businesses in every way we can.”
Further details will be revealed about the prizes up for grabs in the coming weeks.
