The event was held on June 9 rather than its usual date in March, reflecting a Red Rose Awards calendar disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Richard Slater, organiser of the Red Rose Awards, said: “It has been another fantastic night celebrating a host of incredible businesses. Not just the winners, but every company that made the shortlist was worthy of recognition from their peers.

"There was no shortage of good stories to tell. In fact, the adversity that many faced through the pandemic makes these success stories all the more impressive. A huge congratulations to everybody nominated, and especially those who triumphed!”
