“We are all absolutely thrilled to be finalists in not one but four fantastic categories at the upcoming Family Business Awards. Grace Overseas has been part of our family for nearly 40 years and this feels like the perfect celebration to accompany our upcoming milestone. Well done to everyone, especially our Mandy who fully deserves the accolade of ‘Employee of the Year’. Wish us luck for the awards ceremony in May!”

Co-Founder and Director of the North West Family Business Awards, Sue Howorth said:

“With another year of increased entries, we have been working with our 23 judges which are representing all 5 counties of the North West and we know they have had extremely difficult decisions to make. Our finalists should be extremely proud of themselves for being recognised in this year’s shortlist. 

A huge thank you to everyone who has invested time filling in their application forms. We’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity and attention to detail in the applications.”
