Gosport Centre Goes for Award Hatrick
A business centre located in Gosport, which won an award in the annual ‘Gosport in Bloom’ competition last month, has now been nominated for a further two awards within the space of a week.
The Gosport Business Celebration Awards gives local businesses the chance to raise their profile, shout about their achievements and be publicly acknowledged for the contribution they make to the economy and local community.
Gosport Business Centre has been shortlisted for the award in the ‘Economic Potential in Gosport’ category, which is reserved for organisations that have been in the area for less than 10 years.
“It has been a remarkable week with two calls completely out of the blue telling us that we are in the running for an award,” said Centre Manager Andrew Weston.
“It just goes to show that you should never doubt your own business and how well it is perceived by others.”
The second award nomination is for the ‘We Can Do It’ Community Awards, run by the Portsmouth News, which recognises the work and dedication of businesses within the local community. The centre was nominated for the ‘Best Business’ category in part due to its work with The Rainbow Centre in Fareham, a charity that offers support for children with Cerebral Palsy and adults who have suffered from a stroke, MS or Parkinson’s disease.
As well as its support of The Rainbow Centre, the Basepoint-operated centre has also been recognised for its sponsorship of the Gosport Falcons under 11’s football team, Bridgemary Carnival and a number of other local initiatives.
The award evenings both take place during the month of November, so watch this space for further news as it unfolds!
Across the Basepoint portfolio, other business centres under the brand also offer support for local initiatives through fundraising schemes and sponsorship of local charities.
Earlier this month, 10 Basepoint centres in the South of England joined forces to raise over ┬ú3,500 for Hampshire and West Sussex charity, Smile Support & Care, by selling hundreds of ‘race’ balloons to local businesses. The balloons were then released during a Fun Day event which featured stalls, games and a fancy dress competition, to mark the start of the race.
Basepoint’s Bournemouth centre also raised over ┬ú2,000 recently for local charity Diverse Abilities Plus, following six months of fundraising activities ranging from a Michael Bubl├⌐ Tribute evening to a quiz night at the Tavern Pub in Poole.
“We are delighted to be supporting such a worthwhile local charity,” said Centre Manager Carly Thompson, “and it’s great to be involved with the diverse range of events they organise, from their tribute evening to their forthcoming Scrumptious Home Baking recipe book.”
