The team at a Bradford based garden centre group is celebrating after reaching the final of a regional business award.

Tong Garden Centre has been shortlisted in the Community category in the Bradford Means Business Awards.

Tong Garden Centre’s Head of People, Culture & Sustainability, Neil Barwise-Carr, said: “Our local community is at the heart of everything we do, from our charity of the year to the Kindness Pot what has supported 95 local initiatives through donations, sponsorship and volunteering. We’re proud and delighted to be in the final of this prestigious award.”

Sponsored by brsk, the Community award recognises businesses that demonstrate their commitment to the community to deliver positive change.

The team faces competition from Yorkshire Building Society and Sovereign Healthcare and will learn whether they have been successful at a black-tie dinner on July 19th at the Cedar Court Hotel in Bradford, organised in partnership with Bradford Council.

Tong Garden Centre occupies a 19-acre site in Tong village. It is one of Yorkshire’s biggest independent garden centres with 11,600m2 of retail space and parking for up to 700 cars.
