Our co-owner, Nik Wood, is always ready to remind people that he’s a Yorkshireman.
So he’s happy to be on the road in what he refers to as ‘God’s County’ this week as we complete the filming for the 2018 Variety Yorkshire Business Awards.
And when he heard that he was to visit Betty’s Cafe, a Yorkshire icon, he was even more delighted. The business has been shortlisted in this year’s awards so naturally he insisted that he has to do a ‘piece to camera’ sat at a table full of Yorkshire tea and cakes!
We have already interviewed the judges and sponsors for this year’s event which promises to be another triumph for Variety the Children’s Charity and their fantastic work in Yorkshire. The lunchtime event is the region’s definitive business awards, celebrating the many achievements and undisputed excellence of companies in Yorkshire.
Over the years, it has become a premier fixture in the business calendar, raising more than £3million for sick, disabled and underprivileged children across the region.
The lunch is attended by 450 Yorkshire businessmen and women comprising the top management of all the public companies headquartered in the region as well as most of the region’s professional advisers.
Watch out for our video highlighting the key aspects of this years awards.
