Wightlink Warriors bosses Barry Bishop and Martin Widman are said to be extremely proud to be 1 of 3 nominated businesses in the ‘Business in the Community Award’ category at this year’s Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce Business Awards for Excellence.
The award recognises a business of any size and sector that has contributed most to the Island’s wider community, through support, partnerships or social investment in community projects. The Wightlink Warriors have been nominated alongside Storeroom2010 and The Footprint Trust.
Speaking on behalf of the club, Barry Bishop said:
“This nomination is a direct result of how our sponsors, advertisers and supporters from both the Island and on the mainland have all embraced the Warrior Way to take our ethos and the Warriors to the community, supporting the community and developing our fun filled family night out.
“Everybody’s efforts have been acknowledged via this nomination and both Martin and myself are very grateful to everyone who has backed the club in our first season operational season, a season whose success we are determined to build upon in 2017.”
The winners will be presented at an event hosted by ITV’s Fred Dinenage at Cowes Yacht Haven on Friday 2nd December.
