Kidult and Co are proud to be able to tell you that we have once again been shortlisted for an award at this year’s Rossendale Business Awards, also known as R-Awards 2017. With three nominations and an award win last year, we were already feeling very lucky, but can we do it again?
We had a great time last year amongst the 100 or so other businesses nominated, and felt like we had really come a long way with our awesome kids gender-neutral clothing line. Being recognised for something we (and you!) passionately believe in makes all the hard graft worth the while!
The packed ceremony last year was an excellent celebration of the different types of businesses we have here in Rossendale and Valley at Work really did work hard to put on a great event.
The 2017 R-Awards, now in their 8th year, have grown to become the largest local business event of the year. The aim of the award is to showcase the achievements, quality and diversity of the local businesses and enterprising people who make Rossendale such a great place to live, work and visit.
Once again, the 2017 ceremony will be held at the Riverside, Whitworth on Wednesday November 15th. We can hardly wait!
So what, have we been nominated for…?
Double The Fun!
The Creative Business category is awarded to the most creative Rossendale-based business. We were delighted to have won this accolade last year and would love to take it home again!
The award is open to any creative business in Rossendale and we have again demonstrated the creative values and philosophy of Kidult and Co. This is of course something our customers will already be familiar with. We set out with a simple aim – to make kids clothing that broke the mould and took a stand against the stereotypical pink and blue clothing brigade, and we believe we’ve been creative in the many ways we’ve achieved our goals to date.
In addition to the Creative Business award, we have also made the shortlist for the Independent Retailer award! The winner of this award will be an independent Rossendale retailer that has provided consistent excellence for its customers this past year.
We don’t like to blow our own trumpet too much, but we really hope that’s the case and that we have lots of happy customers! The feedback we’ve had so far has always been positive and we all work very hard on this front, so it would be awesome if that effort was recognised at the awards ceremony.
Can We Do It Again?
We had an amazing time at the awards last year and were absolutely blown away to have been shortlisted for two awards. Winning the Creative Business category in 2016 was a shocker for sure, but so exciting! We discovered on the evening that we had also been nominated for the Valley at Work award – which basically was an award for best overall business. We didn’t manage to scoop that one but it was still such an honour to have been a finalist!
The competition was tough last year and we have a feeling this year it will be even tougher! Although we would be over the moon to win an award this year too, we’re trying not to be too cocky, so will be waiting with bated breath until the day is here. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
