Stelios awards!!!


What a fantastic night it was last night Stelios Awards for Disabled Entrepreneurs in the UK 2017! Such a great evening meeting lots of fascinating people. With thanks to Stelios Philanthropic Foundation & Leonard Cheshire Disability.

Over the evening I met lots of wonderful people, the whole evening was an amazing experience, the atmosphere was buzzing and wow was it packed!

The speeches were lovely and held by previous award winners, Ed Price from Department for Work and Pensions, this years overall winner ' Mental Snapp', Neil Heslop, CEO Leonard Cheshire Disability and of course Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.

The awards were held at The Chelsea Pensioners at The Royal Hospital Chelsea, London, United Kingdom, what a wonderful place and an incredible building, not only that, a few of The Chelsea Pensioners were there and I got to chat to a few of them.

I am currently under The Princes Trust who are helping me with my business and I was happily surprised that representatives for Princes Trust came to the awards to meet me and congratulate me!

Huge thank you to everyone involved!
