Lovell is committed to playing a key role in the Lanarkshire business community and to promoting its success and diversity, in line with the aims of the awards, and sends its most sincere congratulations to all the finalists.

The award was chosen for sponsorship as it aligns entirely with Lovell Partnerships guiding principle of leaving a social impact where they work by working with local businesses communities to create jobs and training opportunities.
