The Award Ceremony this evening took place at Plaisterers’ Hall, London. We welcomed familiar faces from across the veteran community as well as some new members alongside great representation from businesses, charities, government, royalty and the MOD. Stuart Rock and Alecia Emerson-Thomas hosted the outstanding event that will go down as the highlight of the year for the charity.
Congratulations to all of the finalists of this year’s Heropreneurs Awards Finalists. Judging this year couldn’t have been tighter and every entrant put forward a remarkable submission for the awards.
Many thanks to the sponsors and supporters this year, without you, the event simply couldn’t be held. We look forward to working with you over the next 12 months.
