On Thursday 25 July, around 500 representatives from Brighton and Hove’s leading organisations gathered at the Hilton Brighton Metropole for the Brighton and Hove Business Awards (BAHBAs).
The awards, run by Platinum Publishing Group, are supported by the city’s leading organisations and are firmly established as a benchmark to recognise local start-ups, sole traders and organisations who have really shone over the past year. There were 15 categories ranging from Company of the Year to Innovation in Business.
Martlets was a finalist for ‘Not for Profit Business of the Year’, alongside Active Sussex and Rockinghorse. We extend huge congratulations to the winners of this category – Brighton and Hove Food Partnership.
Imelda Glackin, CEO of Martlets, was nominated and went on to win the prestigious Outstanding Brightonian Award! The award, with nominees hand-picked by the judges, recognised Imelda for her outstanding contribution to the Brighton and Hove community.
On receiving the award, Imelda said:
“Martlets is an incredible place because it’s where you remember how to live. I’ve got the greatest job in the city. I have the best job in town. I work with an incredible team of people and over 600 volunteers and they look after all of us at a time in our lives when we need it most.
Just remember to live your life and don’t sweat the small stuff.”
