The company, which provides health and wellbeing services and well as managing leisure venues within Rossendale was selected from amongst hundreds of nominees to become one of the finalists for the prestigious High Growth Business of the Year category.
Speaking on behalf of the company Chief Executive, Ken Masser said: “We’re delighted the Trust is a finalist in the prestigious regional E3 awards. Our ongoing work to support health, fun and happiness through charitable community leisure is something we are incredibly passionate about, and the progress we have made in expanding our reach and offer in the last year is down to the hard work, commitment and dedication of our talented team.”
"I'd like to congratulate Rossendale Leisure Trust," said Mubarak Chati, managing director of 1 Events Media, which hosts the E3 Awards. "We get hundreds of very compelling nominations every year, so to be named a finalist is a genuine achievement in itself.
"I say that partly because I know how rigorous the judges are when they make their shortlist selections. We have worked very hard to create a judging process that is fair, transparent and clearly defined, so finalists can feel proud that they really earned their place at the Awards evening. To get here, companies such as Rossendale Leisure Trust have shown that they are amongst the best, most dynamic businesses in the whole of the North West.
"More generally, we've set out to create an experience that we hope makes every entrant feel special. And it's right that they should; looking at each year's applications, it's always amazing to see what northwest companies are achieving; how much passion and intelligence they put into their plans for growth. Not all of them reach the finals of course, and that makes Rossendale Leisure Trust’s achievement all the more impressive."
