WSV is proud to announce that we were Finalists in the “One to Watch” category at this year’s UK Social Enterprise Awards. As the proportion of social enterprises being started in the UK continues to rise, the “One to Watch” category, sponsored by GLL, received the most applications from a variety of incredible and life changing businesses.
The UK’s Social Enterprise Awards recognise businesses that contribute to society – entrepreneurs who use their business to make an impact on social and environmental challenges at home and abroad. The award is exclusively for social enterprises under 2 years old, a testament to the work of our network as WSV is only 1 year’s old, as of June 2017.
Bradley Heslop, co-Founder WSV represented WSV at the awards ceremony held at Royal Horticultural Hall. Seen here with Michael Sheen, an actor and political activist who showed his support for WSV by holding one of our Petal sanitary pads and Right Light solar lamps. ‘Of course, once Michael had got his hands on Right Light and Petal everyone else had to get involved...’
We are truly grateful to be finalists for the “One to Watch” award and hope to be back next year with more great stories from our entrepreneurs and partners.
