Social enterprise of the year went to the National Forum for Health and Wellbeing, based in Preston and Bolton.

Hannah Warren, from Oxygen Personnel, picked up young entrepreneur of the year.

Managing director of 1 Events Media, Mubarak Chati, said: “The improved numbers and the exceptionally high calibre of this year’s nominees point, I think, to the North West’s rising economic fortunes. There is such energy and entrepreneurial spirit being invested in the region’s businesses and, as the nominations prove, local entrepreneurs are achieving hugely impressive things.

“Given the extent of the competition this year, all our winners and all those who achieved a place in the finals can feel very proud. Our judges remarked many times on the high standard of entries and they were clearly impressed by the commitment, the professionalism and the innovative ideas that lay behind the finalists’ achievements. On behalf of 1 Events Media, I offer all the finalists my warmest congratulations and I hope that their many successes continue in the coming year.”
