Chamber President Kevin Harris, who spoke at the start of the evening, said: “One of the main privileges of being Chamber President is being able to address and celebrate the crème de la crème of our region’s businesses at the Business Awards.
“Making it through to the final is cause for celebration in itself and whether you get that far or walk off with the ultimate crown, you should shout about that success and proclaim to the world that yours is one of the best businesses out there.”

Simon Harris, Managing Director of DHU Urgent Care (LLR) who were nominated, said: “It was a pleasure to attend the East Midlands Chambers of Commerce awards and a privilege to be shortlisted as finalists for 2 categories, outstanding growth and excellence in customer service. Both these categories demonstrate the fantastic work undertaken by the staff of LLR and the high quality of care delivered across the diverse range of services we provide.
