Firms vie for spolight

HARD-WORKING people are more keen than ever to share their success stories judging by the response to a forthcoming competition.

Doncaster Chamber has seen entries for its annual business awards leap by 85 per cent - from 56 last year to 105 in 2012.

Its chief executive Phil Harris described the increase as staggering and said it showed how the Doncaster business community has fared in the last year, despite continuing tough economic conditions.

I’m delighted to see so many local businesses speaking out about their successes and the diverse range of businesses entering awards this year, from different sectors, sizes and stages of business growth,” he added.

Tickets for next month’s awards ceremony are available at or by calling 01302 640100.
