Excitement is building among the Perrys team as we get ready to host our inaugural Perrys Exceptional Awards – a celebration of the achievements, efforts and accomplishments of businesses, groups and individuals from across Kent.
As a community focused firm that works with clients across the county, we were keen to mark the outstanding contribution local groups and individuals make to Kent, which is why we established the Perrys Exceptional Awards.
Split into four categories the accolades will honour exceptional businesses, charities, individuals and services.
We were bowled over by the number of nominees put forward for each category and it was a difficult job to whittle down the list of nominees to come up with our shortlisted finalists.
They will now all be joining us to celebrate at our grand awards event on Thursday 10 November at the beautiful Leeds Castle in Maidstone.Specially recorded films about each of our finalists will play out on the night, detailing what they do for their communities and the services they provide.
Our guests will also be sitting down to a delicious three-course dinner before the winners are announced.
Our CEO Stewart said:
"All of us at Perrys are really excited about the awards and getting the chance to honour those in the county who go above and beyond to help those around them.
"It has been lovely to read the nominations and heartwarming to hear the tales of how individuals and groups have provided exceptional service to their communities. We're really looking forward to announcing the winners and throwing a much-deserved spotlight on them and all the work they do."
