Our annual Giving Something Back Awards took place at the end of November at Liverpool Town Hall, and celebrated our employees successes from 2015. Over 80 people gathered at the iconic setting in the heart of the city, and were treated to a performance by a local choir, a speech by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Tony Conception and a 2 course delicious meal.
