20.02.2024 Southwark Business Awards

Last week, the business community of Southwark came together for a spectacular night of celebration at the Southwark Business Excellence Awards.

With anticipation buzzing in the air, entrepreneurs, innovators, and community leaders from across the borough gathered to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions that have helped shape Southwark over the last year.

These awards serve as a fantastic platform to recognise not only business success but also the ethos of corporate responsibility and community engagement that lies at the heart of Southwark’s identity.

Diana Barranco, Community Director, Elephant and Castle Town Centre said: “On behalf of the Elephant and Castle Town Centre team, I’d like to congratulate the Ballers Academy for winning this year’s Contribution to the Community Award. This award category, which we have sponsored for the second year running, recognises local organisations that work day in, and day out to contribute to the local communities through a variety of innovative initiatives and social value programmes. The Ballers Academy provides high-quality football training to young people throughout Southwark and this year’s award was well deserved!

“We’d also like to commend all finalists for the Contribution to the Community Award, who we hope will feel inspired by their recognition to continue the fantastic work they do for the Southwark community”.

From start-ups to long-standing institutions, all the wonderful winners on the night demonstrated a commitment to excellence and as a result, these awards truly were a night to remember!
