Gloucestershire Live Business Awards
The long-awaited GloucestershireLive Business Awards, brought to you by Reach plc | GloucestershireLive and BusinessLive – in partnership with returning headline sponsors, Randall & Payne – have returned for 2021 for their 23rd year and we’re honoured to be recognising the resilience and achievements of our business community.
Gloucestershire is home to many incredible success stories – from large corporations to SMEs – and it’s now more than ever that we strongly believe in the importance of celebrating the positive accomplishment of businesses in Gloucestershire. It is an opportunity to come together as a collective business community and support each other. We want you to share with us your can-do initiatives, your positive updates and your optimistic projects.
And it’s not just businesses which are celebrated. The GloucestershireLive Business Awards also recognise individual talent, whether you are an entrepreneur who has launched a business and grown it successfully, or a star employee who has stood out from all others.
The awards also remind us that Gloucestershire is a great place to live, work and do business. They toast success, celebrate achievement and highlight successful and innovative businesses doing great things right here in the region.
Managing Partner Tim Watkins from our headline sponsor, Randall & Payne, who are sponsoring the awards for the ninth time emphasised the importance of acknowledging the perseverance of businesses in the face of adversity:
“It gives us great pleasure to be involved once more with the GloucestershireLive Business Awards now that they are finally able to return after such a challenging year. As a business community we need more than ever to get together and acknowledge our achievements and share our stories of resilience during such unprecedented times. Personally I am looking forward to reading and judging the entries and am hopeful that we can gather for the awards ceremony later this year when restrictions are over and confidence is returning for us all.”

OUR CHARITY PARTNER
Scoo-B-Doo was established in 1982 by a small group of grateful parents, together with doctors and nurses. Today, the registered charity is still run entirely by volunteers and supports the Neonatal Unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in caring for sick and premature babies from Gloucestershire and beyond.
From day one, the charity has been actively fundraising to provide equipment and essential items. Over 80% of the equipment used on the ward every day has been funded by Scoo-B-Doo, helping to ensure that the babies are given the best possible care. Recently, the charity has not only bought equipment, but has refurbished the room where mothers express their breast-milk, as well as funding special training for nurses.
The NHS does it’s part too of course, providing us with a building and paying for all of the dedicated medical staff as well as the life-saving drugs used on the ward. But with the NHS under constant financial pressure, the money Scoo-B-Doo raises is vital in supporting the service and that is critical to the survival of these vulnerable patients.
However you choose to donate, your contribution is very welcome and will be put to good use – 100% of every donation goes to help our vulnerable patients and their families. Scoo-B-Doo buys smaller items from £15 for small gifts for mums to help with infant feeding and £70 for stethoscopes, right up to £20,000 for incubators and ventilators.
We accept donations by the traditional means of collecting tins, cash donations and cheques which can be handed in or posted to the neonatal unit, or a committee member can arrange to collect from you.
