BUSINESSES across the area are being invited to help support and celebrate the vital work of NHS staff in hospitals and in the community.
The Pride Awards, now in their ninth year, celebrate the excellence and professionalism of health employees who work at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust.
The awards are also an opportunity for staff to recognise the achievements of one another and for patients to highlight staff who have given outstanding care.
The Trust is keen to hear from businesses and organisations across Southport, Formby, West Lancashire and the North West who would be interested in giving financial support to this year’s Pride Awards.
A number of sponsorship opportunities are available for each of the award categories. Iain McInnes, interim Chief Executive, said: “The Pride Awards are a fantastic opportunity for our community to help celebrate their NHS heroes.
“We are grateful to our existing sponsors for their continuing support but I know there will be many others who want to show their appreciation to staff by supporting this event.”
Companies or organisations interested in sponsorship should contact Joanne Chorley at the Trust on 01704 704714 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Pride Awards will be held at Southport Theatre and Convention Centre in June. Nominations for the Patient Award will open later in February.
