Created in 2010 by Annabel and Charlotte, and still organised by Wilsons, the Awards remain the UK’s only independent, not-for-profit annual Awards for family businesses.
Returning after a three year break due to the pandemic, the Awards is now entering its second decade, we are looking forward to celebrating and recognising the success, achievements and innovations of the region’s family run and owned businesses once again.
With 10 categories to choose from, there are accolades suitable for businesses of all sizes, across all sectors and we look forward to receiving entries from the businesses we have met over the first 10 years, and introducing new family businesses to the Awards too.
Move Against Cancer is the chosen charity that the awards will be supporting this year, with all profits from the awards evening donated.
The black-tie awards ceremony is being held on 29 June and will be a summer event held at the stunning Kelham Hall near Newark.
Wilsons’ MD and Awards co-founder, Charlotte Perkins, said: “Myself and my sister Annabel are so pleased to be bringing back the Midlands Family Business Awards, after a three year break. It’s fantastic to have our current Family Business of the Year, The Wilkins Group, as our headline sponsor. Thanks to Justin and the Wilkins family, we’ll see them hand over the crown to their successor, which will be a very special moment to start our second Awards decade.
“We have taken the opportunity to mix things up a bit. We have always held the Awards Ceremony and Dinner in November, but decided that a summer event would give us the perfect opportunity to have our celebration in summer-style.
“Putting your family business forward for an award can reap a host of benefits and rewards beyond the trophy and title so I encourage as many as possible to get involved and submit an application.
“There are so many family businesses that are having a remarkable impact on the Midlands region and beyond, and we can’t wait to see what brilliant work they’ve been doing. I wish all the businesses who enter the very best of luck!”
