Ellis Jones Solicitors is recognising the entrepreneurial flair of fledgling firms at the Wimborne Business Awards.
It is sponsoring the ‘New Business of the Year’ category at the annual extravaganza, which is being held on Thursday April 27.
Ellis Jones, which has offices in East Street, Wimborne, has backed the celebration of the town’s businesses as part of its policy of supporting local communities and good causes.
Partner Kate Brooks, who is Head of Employment/HR Services and has strong Wimborne connections, said: “It is a privilege to support the Wimborne Business Awards and sponsor the New Business of the Year category.
“Start-up firms are so important to our local economies and business communities yet it can be a tough journey in the early years.
“The award is a fantastic way of encouraging and rewarding new business owners in Wimborne who have shown such tenacity and entrepreneurial spirit to get their enterprises off the ground.”
Ellis Jones is sponsoring the Wimborne Business Awards for the second successive year.
Last year its category, Outstanding Customer Service, was won by Hyperion Hot Tubs.
Nigel Smith, Managing Partner at Ellis Jones, said: “Wimborne is blessed with a wonderfully vibrant, diverse and supportive business community of which we are proud to be a member.
“We’re looking forward to reading some inspirational entries and announcing the winner at the awards night.”
New Business of the Year is among 12 categories in the annual awards. They are organised by Marketing West Events and are being held at Wimborne Football Club.
Ellis Jones also sponsors a number of local charities, good causes and sports clubs, including Wimborne’s cricket team.
