Finalists announced for the Chamber's Goole & Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards

THE judges of the Chamber's Goole and Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards 2024 have announced their shortlisted finalists after carefully considering almost 80 entries.

As in previous years, the independent judging panel was also tasked with selecting the recipient of the Overall Business of the Year Award, which is sponsored by Siemens, from the shortlisted finalists. Meanwhile, the organising committee has chosen an individual to receive the Tim Richardson Lifetime Achievement Award.

Garrey Haase, Chair of the organising committee, said: “We received almost 80 entries, which is one of the highest numbers ever, and we’re very grateful to our judges for giving up their time to consider them for us.

“It’s great to see so many businesses of all sizes and from such a broad mix of different sectors entering the awards, which are now in their 13th year and continue to go from strength to strength.”

Garrey added: “Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter. Congratulations to our shortlisted finalists - we wish you the very best of luck and look forward to celebrating your successes at our awards ceremony on 5 April.”

Tickets for the black tie event, which will take place on Friday, 5 April, at Goole Academy, are available from the website -
