Blackpool FC Community Trust was triumphant at the Radio Wave Culture, Lifestyle and Business Awards on Friday, which was held in the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens.
After submitting an application to celebrate its ten-year anniversary as a registered charity, the Trust was shortlisted for the long-serving 2019 Business of the Year Award.
The evening proved to be a great success, topped by the Trust receiving the most votes from our local community, to come out on top, against some other fantastic local businesses.
Ashley Hackett, Chief Executive of The Trust, said: “This was a great way for us to celebrate ten years of helping people in Blackpool as a charity, and we would like to thank everybody that voted for us in our category.
“I’d also like to publicly thank the great team we have, who work so hard, and make an enormous impact on Blackpool residents' lives. We know that the future is really exciting for us and we look forward to making everyone aware of our plans and developments in due course.”
The Trust would also like to congratulate all the other winners on the night and thank Radio Wave for hosting such a fantastic event.
Finally, The Trust has recently been informed that it will be a finalist in the BIBAs Third Sector Organisation category. The winners will be announced in September this year following a visit for the final round of judging in July.
