Charity Partner Announced for the 2018 Stockport Business Awards!

Over 30 charities across Stockport and Greater Manchester applied for the opportunity to become charity partner for the 2018 Stockport Business Awards, but there could only be one winner and this year’s chosen charity is Signpost Stockport for Carers. The judging panel included the organisers, founders and main sponsors Clarke Nicklin, headline sponsors Gorvins Solicitors and Orbit Developments, and an Economic Alliance and Stockport Council representative.

Signpost Stockport for Carers are an independent local charity which provides free, confidential information and support to unwaged carers of all ages in the Stockport area. A carer may not always live with the person they care for, but their help can often be essential in enabling that person to go on living independently. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for carers in Stockport.

Deputy Director of Signpost Stockport for Carers, Julia Hewer, said “Signpost Stockport for Carers are absolutely thrilled to have been selected as the charity partner of the Stockport Business Awards. As a charity, we support all unpaid carers in Stockport, including those with a ‘day job’. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness of working carers within Stockport businesses and celebrate all that they contribute in the workplace and our community.”

The Stockport Business Awards have been an iconic event within the business community of Stockport since 2012. Each year the event raises around £5,000 for a local cause. Last year’s charity partner was the NSPCC who benefited hugely from the support and donations.

Marketing Manager, Laura Frost of Clarke Nicklin said: “We are delighted to be supporting Signpost this year, these decisions are always the hardest as all the organisations were worthy and do such amazing work but there can only be one charity partner. We hope we can raise as much as we can and help the Stockport community find out more about the organisation”.

For any other queries regarding the Stockport Business Awards please contact laurafrost@clarkenicklin.co.uk
