The best of North Tyneside’s businesses are to be celebrated at an upcoming event.

Taking place on the evening of November 30th, the annual North Tyneside Business Awards will honour businesses that have made a huge contribution to the borough.

Television presenter Kim Inglis will host this year’s awards ceremony and after dinner entertainment will be provided in the form of charity-casino gaming for Daft as a Brush: Cancer Patient Care. The charity has been chosen by the family of former Business Forum chairman David Rose, who sadly passed away in May. 

The event is organised by North Tyneside Business Forum, and a total of 18 businesses have been named as finalists across six categories.

This year, the Business Forum introduced a brand new award which recognises businesses which have gone the extra mile for their community. Over 70 public nominations were received for the Heart of the Community Award and voting is now open on the dedicated website. The finalists are DMC Service Centre, Pirate Escape and Move it Studios. 

Ahead of the event, Elected Mayor Norma Redfearn said: “The North Tyneside Business Awards are a fantastic way for us to show our appreciation for the outstanding contribution that local businesses make to North Tyneside’s economy.

“Every year we see so many excellent entries across all of the categories, with each one providing a different service and helping to make our borough such a great place to live, work and visit.

“It’s always such an exciting event and I’m looking forward to see what this year’s entrants have in store for us.”
