Ribble Valley Based based Community Radio Station, Ribble FM AND Executive Director and Station Manager Kath Lord-Green have both been shortlisted as finalists for the 2018 E3 Business Awards, which will be held at the Macron Stadium in Bolton on Thursday 12th July 2018.
Ribble FM CIC was selected from amongst hundreds of nominees to become one of the finalists for the prestigious Social Enterprise category and Station Manager Kath Lord-Green was selected as a finalist for Outstanding Women in Business.
Speaking on behalf of the business, Kath Lord-Green said: “I’m delighted for the whole team here at Ribble FM, that the station is a finalist in this great category and for myself, well, I’m over the moon to be selected from so many outstanding business women, what an honour. We are looking forward to the night and just to be finalists, is fantastic for our Community Station”
“We had almost three hundred nominations this year,” said Mubarak Chati, managing director of 1 Events Media, which hosts the E3 Awards. “The Awards are now in their sixth year and, every year since we’ve started, the number and calibre of entrants has grown.
“This year, we’ve seen such a strong turn-out that we’ve taken the unusual step of expanding the number of finalists in most of the key categories.
“It’s also been really good to see that we have finalists from every county of the North West, from Cumbria to Cheshire. The E3 Business Awards are all about inclusivity, so to see such a healthy mix of mainstream and rural businesses, women and young entrepreneurs, social enterprises and so on – that’s fantastic, and just what we want to see.
“Given that we’ve had our best ever influx of nominations, anyone who has made it to the shortlist stage has done so against the very fiercest competition. As one of our 2018 finalists Ribble FM should feel very proud indeed.”
