We’re very proud to have won an Elite Business Award

We’re all celebrating after adding yet another award to our bulging trophy cabinet!

We were recently announced as the winner in the Elite Business of the Year category at the Aagrah Restaurant Group’s recent 36th Annual Dinner and Elite Yorkshire Business Awards that raised £125,000 for charity.

Our Managing Director, Mark Farnsworth and Commercial Director, Sharon McNair (pictured, centre) were among the 600 business guests attending the event at the Centenary Pavilion, Leeds United.

Of the award, Mark said: “Yorkshire boasts some of the largest and most successful companies in the UK and I’m proud to accept this award on behalf of the team at Tong who have worked tirelessly to restore Tong to its former glory.”

Aagrah’s fund raising is done through its charity wing, Jannat Welfare International Trust, in memory of Sajid Sabir, late son of Aagrah’s Chairman, Mohammed Sabir, MBE, Hons Dbs to benefit local, national and international charities. This year’s main beneficiary charity is The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, Leeds.

In the last 12 months, we have won five awards at the North East and North West regional Garden Centre Association (GCA) awards, three Horticulture Week awards, two awards at the Garden Centre Retail awards, including Destination Garden Centre Outlet of the Year and Customer Service Excellence and Job Creator of the Year in the Bradford means Business Awards. Phew! Thanks to everyone who has played a part in our success this year.
