Staff from Bolton School and Patterdale Hall, the School’s outdoor adventure learning centre, joined the cream of Manchester’s business community for this year’s Manchester Evening News (MEN) Business Awards held at a prestigious ceremony at The Principal Hotel in the city centre.

The School was again proud to sponsor the Young Business of the Year Award at what was the 25th MEN Business Awards ceremony. Over 400 guests from the city's best businesses saw Mrs Cathy Fox, Clerk and Treasurer at the School, hand over the Young Business of the Year Award to healthy snacking start-up Real Handful, who narrowly edged out Candour Logistics, Gorilla Accounting and Innside.

The event, hosted once again by journalist and tv presenter Nicholas Owen, also saw awards going to Shield Safety Group (food, fire and health and safety software) in the turnover under £5m category, Kids Allowed, a children nurseries operator, in the £5m-£10m category, travel experts Inspire  in the turnover between £10m-£25m field, Carrs Foods in the turnover between £25m-£50m section, Zen Internet in the £50m-£100m category, Milliken European Airbag Products in the £100m+ section and IESA, a business process outsourcing company, in the head office outside Greater Manchester category. The Judges’ Choice Award was given to The Regatta Group (outdoor clothing) and this year's Mitchell Henry Award, which commemorates the founder of the MEN and recognises a person or business who has made an outstanding contribution to the region, went to Morson Group, a Salford based technical recruiter.
