The team behind one of Lancashire’s leading business awards has been contacted by a character claiming to be its very own ‘Stig’.

Dressed in a golden mask similar to the famous trophy of the Be Inspired Business Awards and wearing a golden boiler suit and boots, the Stig has been appearing across the county in recent weeks in the familiar ‘BIBAs Bend’ pose.

Babs Murphy, chief executive of the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, which organises the awards, said: “The BIBAs Stig has told us to expect to see them over social media in the coming weeks.

“It is a little over a month until we hand out our 19 prizes in front of another sell-out crowd at the Blackpool Tower, so we can expect to see this character quite a bit between now and then.”

The Stig is raising money for the BIBAs Foundation and will reveal his or her identity on the awards night if reaching a target donation of £1,000.
