Anthony’s Travel has won the 2019 Halton Foundation Award for Responsible Business at the Halton Business Awards held on Friday 15 November 2019 at the Halton Stadium, Widnes.
With over 400 people attending the ceremony the judges had their work cut out to select a worthy winner. When deciding what set Anthony’s Travel apart from other companies, the judging panel commented: “Anthony’s Travel’s passion for Halton is unrivalled. With a wealth of experience, they truly care and don’t pay lip service when it comes to supporting Halton Borough. Their community initiatives are wide and varied but are all have grass roots so you can see the real difference their help and assistance makes to the community.”
Richard Bamber, Managing Partner of Anthony’s Travel, commented: “We were delighted to receive this award. For numerous factors the start of 2019 was very eventful for Anthony’s and quite stressful. Despite this we never lost sight of our family values and ethos, we are really proud to be from Halton and whilst we are only really a small business we have shown that you can make a big difference and value our community partnerships. As local residents we have a responsibility to the people of Halton and if we can help to build a better Borough we are always happy to assist as and when we can.“
Jan Gray of local charity Halton Haven, which has a long association with Anthony’s Travel, added: “Anthony’s Travel has supported Halton Haven Hospice for many years now and is always accommodating our patient and carer group outings, seaside trips and pub meals allowing them time out to have fun. Staff are always very supportive to the group and staff. Halton Haven is very grateful for all their support we receive.”
