Avagio won the Wiltshire Council and NHS Wiltshire Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) award for Employer Demonstrating Support for Local Communities.
One of the reasons we won the award was because Avagio provided free IT Support to the Wiltshire Blind Association (WBA), a Devizes based charity serving blind and partially sighted people living in Wiltshire.
Avagio’s relationship with WBA goes back to 2010 when we began providing them with free IT support for all their staff. We have recently agreed to support them for at least another 3 years.
Avagio were voted winners in the Small Business of the Year category of the Chippenham Business Awards 2013, at a lavish Gala event held early March 2013. Commenting on the win Adam Morris, Avagio Managing Director, said ‘’ We are all delighted to have won this award, which is testimony to the efforts the Avagio team have put into growing the business over the past year by providing the highest standards of service to our growing client base.’’ Avagio were chosen by an independent panel of judges and presented with a framed certificate and trophy to recognise their achievement.
Avagio are finalists in the Wiltshire Business Awards 2012 and will be attending the finalists event at the De Vere Village, Swindon, on Tuesday 12th March 2013. The event will provide a great networking opportunity and enable us to meet both the sponsors and fellow finalists. The Awards Gala Dinner is being will be in April at Center Parcs, and we are confident of winning!
Avagio has been short listed as a finalist for the Chippenham Business Awards under the Small Business of the Year category. We were shortlisted from 218 applications by an independent board of judges. The winner across a range of categories will be announced at the awards gala dinner 1st March 2013 at the Neeld Hall.
We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Wiltshire Life ‘Wiltshire Business of the year Award 2013’. There were some outstanding nominations and after a day of deliberation the distinguished panel of judges made their decision to include Avagio in their shortlist. The celebratory awards evening will be held in March at Marlborough Town Hall, where the winners will be announced.
Run by Newsquest (the UKs largest regional newspaper publishers) The Wiltshire Business of the Year Awards (WBOY) are one of the most prestigious business awards in Wiltshire.
This is the third year that have Avagio have reached the finals for the award (in the Small Business category) but this year we made it all the way to the last three!
The event was celebrated on 12th May, where members of the Avagio team attended the Black Tie Gala Dinner. To be honest we did not really expect to come in the top three, especially as we had heard that there had been over 40 entries in the small business category. So you can imagine our surprise and delight as our name was read out.
Although we did not win the award, coming runner up is a fantastic achievement and we are all rightly proud of ourselves.
