• And the winners are...

    The winners of the 21st annual Doncaster Business Awards, sponsored by Doncaster College and University Centre, were announced on Thursday 12 December during a prestigious awards ceremony at Doncaster Racecourse.

    The black-tie evening organised by Doncaster Chamber saw over 900 guests from the local business community recognise and celebrate the high calibre of work that firms are performing across the borough and beyond.

    The Award winners and runners-up for each of the award categories received their trophies from the sponsor judges having passed through a rigorous two stage judging process involving a written application and interview to be recognised amongst Doncaster’s finest businesses.  

    Over 85 entries were received for the various award categories including customer service, innovation, partnership working, CSER, third sector organisation, people development, rising star and SME and large business of the year. 

    Celebrity magician and 2020 Dancing On Ice Competitor, Ben Hanlin, hosted the evening and entertained the audience with his cheeky personality and mind blowing tricks. 

    Dan Fell, CEO, Doncaster Chamber, said: 

    “Once again our Doncaster Business Awards have been a huge success and are testament to the high calibre of work being done across the borough and beyond. We really do have a lot of success stories to shout about with Doncaster increasingly being recognised as a great place to do business. 

    “Congratulations to all of the winners and runners-up who were very deserving of their awards. Despite the current national climate of uncertainty caused by Brexit, businesses like these are giving Doncaster every opportunity to continue to thrive and grow.”
