The West Midlands was one of 2019’s most hotly-contested regions in the Awards this year and the judges chose Jamrock Catering for the way the business has integrated itself with the community in numerous ways including getting the logo designed by care home residents, offering jobs to the homeless and helping local people achieve life goals like passing their driving test.
Rufus Bazley, Director of Marketing at BusinessesForSale.com says, “2019 was a record year for Small Business Big Heart entries so achieving regional finalist position is incredible. Jamrock stands out amongst our regional finalists as it’s a business that was created by good deeds – from offering to help organise life events for those unable to cope themselves, this business now helps those in the community with key life events like weddings and funerals. I’d like to congratulate all the staff and wish them every success in the next and final round of judging.”
Anthoney Morrison of Jamrock Catering says, “The positivity that our founder gives is worth its weight in gold, she will not allow someone to daydream and will assist them with anything to help them move forward with their dreams. Recently she took a local man who thought he had no prospects and suffered self-doubt under her wing. She helped him pass his driving test, find accommodation and got him set up in a career in catering.”
If Jamrock Catering goes on to win the Small Business Big Heart Awards Gold prize it will receive £1,000 to donate to any good cause of its choice.
Jamrock Catering is one of two finalists from the West Midlands, the other is Restaurant 1840 in Telford. This is the first year more than one finalist has been selected from the region, this is a result of a greater volume of entrants and a higher standard overall. In total there are 20 regional finalists across the country.
The overall winner of the 2019 Small Business Big Heart Award in association with BusinessesForSale.com will be announced on 15 September.
