Over 100 people attended the awards ceremony at the end of November, where social enterprises were recognised for their commitment to a social mission to aid local communities.

We were really happy with the trophies which reflect the ethos of Social Enterprises as organisations working together for social benefit.

The fact that Henshaws themselves are a social enterprise working with people with disabilities is an added bonus showing how diverse a sector social enterprise is.
