BEF are proud to be Social Enterpise UK awards finalists.

We are thrilled to announce we have been shortlisted for this year’s Social Enterprise UK awards, for Social Investment Deal of the Year.

In February 2018 we provided finance and support for a unique community project; Spark:York. After opening its doors to the public in May 2018, Spark:York has been a roaring success, creating 23 new independent businesses and providing a wealth of opportunity for the local community.

Our CEO Steve Waud added, “As a recent member of Social Enterprise UK we are delighted to have been recognised for the work we have done with Spark:York over the last 12 months. The project that Tom and Sam have launched is unique and one we were inspired to support. Our ethos as a business is to support innovative initiatives that make a real difference to the communities they serve – Spark:York is doing just that. We’re proud to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award alongside other hugely inspiring initiatives from across the UK.”

 

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 28th November at Guildhall London.
