Perrys Exceptional Awards 2018 - now open for nominations!
contributions in Kent
The Perrys Exceptional Awards are back for 2018!
The awards, which aim to recognise and celebrate outstanding individuals, businesses and charities from across Kent, are now a mainstay of the annual awards calendar and have become well loved and much coveted, with only four awards being presented each year.
Whether you know an individual who has shown strength in the face of adversity, you want to show your appreciation to an extraordinary charity that is worthy of recognition or shout about a business that has gone the extra mile, we want to hear from you.
At Perrys we pride ourselves on the contribution we make not only to our clients, but also the community around us. Always 'exceptional as standard' the practice and our awards aim to bring together all corners of Kent to celebrate the local community and showcase its achievements.
