Bristol Sport wins Business Leader's COVID-19 Business Hero Award

The annual Business Leader Awards took place online today (Friday), with the winners being announced throughout the morning on social media.

Bristol Sport was honoured to win the first award of the day - this year’s special “Covid-19 Business Hero Award”.

Normally celebrated with a black-tie gala dinner, the event brings together the most influential leaders in business, education and government.

 

Last year’s event was held at Ashton Gate.

With regular categories of Innovation & Technology, Customer Excellence and Family Business all still making an appearance, the COVID-19 Business Hero Award was new for 2020. Designed to recognise the companies that reacted to the pandemic and pivoted the way they operated to be a force for good.

On winning the award Mark Kelly, Managing Director for Bristol Sport & Ashton Gate Stadium said: “We are thrilled to have won this award. It goes to all our staff and the people that volunteered and came together, to help us make a such positive impact on our community, through what has been a very tough year.

“Throughout the pandemic the stadium has remained a beacon of hope, finding new ways to operate and deliver support to our local community. By adapting the stadium – be it for food relief and our partnership with FareShare SW, working with the NHS to support its Covid-19 effort or delivering a drive-in panto this Christmas to provide some much-needed light relief. We are proud of our place in the heart of our community.”

A special dinner is set to take place in Spring 2021 (health guidelines permitting), to recognise the winners and sponsors.
