“The Wandsworth Business Awards seeks to reward business excellence, to showcase what businesses are doing right and will allow other businesses to realise that with the right support systems in place, business can be less taxing.
“The firm is fully behind the event and will do it can to support it, as well as to help local businesses in the borough move forward towards their objectives.”
The awards are also being backed by category sponsors Hodders Law, South Thames College, University of Roehampton and Wandsworth & South London Press.
