“The benefits to Lancashire are immense”

November 2021 2021

We are delighted to have United Utilities, the regional supplier for water and wastewater services across the North West of England, sponsoring the not-for-profit award at the Red Rose Awards 2021, the eleventh annual celebration of the Lancashire business community.

United Utilities serve a population of 7.3 Million, with over 5000 employees and 23000 jobs supported by their work.

Steven Wong, stakeholder manager of United Utilities explained why they are supporting the Red Rose Awards for the second year running.

RRA: How did United Utilities first get involved with the Red Rose Awards?

SW: United Utilities were introduced to Lancashire Business View and the awards by the Community Foundation for Lancashire and their charitable work across the region.

RRA: What is the most rewarding part of being a sponsor?

SW: The most rewarding part is seeing recognition and pride in the winners eyes when shortlisted candidates are given an opportunity to sell their ideas and products at interview

RRA: How do you feel that the Red Rose Awards benefit Lancashire?

SW: The benefit to Lancashire is immense, the ground breaking innovation across the region isn’t always visible, but the awards give opportunities to showcase products, ideas and new technology not only locally, but nationally and internationally.

United Utilities is proud to be a continued sponsor of the Red Rose Awards, we fully support our local businesses and want to see Lancashire be the best.

Since the awards were launched in 2011, it has steadily grown and become the centrepiece attraction for the business community.
