Elite scoops National Family Business Award

Lincolnshire’s The Elite Fish & Chip Company is celebrating after winning the Big Heart category at this year’s National Family Business Awards.

Staff from the restaurants and takeaways in Sleaford, Ruskington and Lincoln were presented with the award at a ceremony at Wembley Arena on Saturday night in recognition of its work in the community and with local charities.

It narrowly missed out on two further accolades - Best to Work For and Family Business of the Year.

The awards recognise the most outstanding family businesses across the UK. 

Rachel Tweedale, manager at the Elite’s Sleaford restaurant, said: “To get shortlisted for three Family Business Place awards is fantastic but to win a national family business award is a real achievement for us, particularly as it concerns our charity fundraising. We’re absolutely over the moon!”

Anita Brightley-Hodges, managing director and founder of awards said: “The Elite Fish and Chip Company have always been advocates of giving back to the community, through varied fundraising campaigns. It is clear to see that their charity work extends to the love and care they have for their customers, making them thoroughly deserved winners of the Big Heart award.”
