We were pleased to be a key sponsor at the 2018 West Sussex County Times Community awards, held at the Capitol Theatre in Horsham on 15th October.
The awards are an opportunity to applaud the unsung heroes in our area. We heard plenty of moving, wonderful stories of bravery and kindness from both young and old - including raising money for a good cause, helping neighbours, been extremely brave or given their time voluntarily working for a charity.
We sponsored the Start-up Business of the Year Award – aimed at local businesses that had been trading for less than 2 years, that has made their mark on the community, while showing excellent growth.
We were delighted to present the award to West Chiltington businesswoman Pollyanna Hutchinson. Her company Pollyanna’s Kitchen has created a very special chilli oil called Chillish® that is selling at a hot pace. She has recently followed this up with Garlish®, a Garlic Oil. Both products are made locally here in West Sussex.
Chris Wise, Senior Partner said: “It was an excellent evening, rewarding the very best individuals and businesses that are making a real difference in our communities. We have been very impressed with the growth that Pollyanna has been able to achieve, which is creating quite a sensation on the dinner plate, as well as on the local business scene. “
