Perrys Accountants announce shortlisted finalists for 2017 Exceptional Awards

After the overwhelming success of last year’s inaugural event, we are excitedly preparing to host our second Perrys Exceptional Awards – in recognition of the inspirational achievements of businesses, charities and individuals from across the county of Kent. 

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional service as standard, and given that we are very much a community-focused firm – with five branches across Kent – we were keen to mark the outstanding contribution of local groups and individuals from the county by honouring them with an exceptional accolade.

Our 2017 shortlisted finalists and their guests will be joining us to celebrate at our prestigious awards event on Thursday 9 November at the beautiful Leeds Castle in Maidstone.  On the evening short films, to showcase each of our finalists, will be screened and our guests will also enjoy a delicious three-course dinner before the winners are announced. 

Our CEO Stewart said:

“We are incredibly excited to be holding our second Exceptional Awards in recognition of the heroes across Kent who go that extra mile for their community.  The quantity and breadth of responses has been just awe-inspiring – we’ve heard some amazing stories of individuals, charities and businesses who have made an exceptional positive impact on the lives of those around them.  The special evening we have planned should be the perfect way to celebrate the dedication and efforts of our finalists.”
