Wow what an experience! Celtic & Co. founders, Nick and Kath Whitworth were invited to Buckingham Palace on Thursday 28th June to receive The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018. Now in its 52nd year, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise was nominated by the Prime Minister and approved by Her Majesty the Queen, so is recognised as one of the most prestigious business awards in the world.
Here are some snaps from the Whitworth's big day at the Palace...
“All of us here at Celtic & Co are so immensely proud of this achievement and I thank everybody involved in this team effort. Receiving this Queen’s Award has to be one of our most memorable experiences since we started so long ago back in 1990. To receive one of the most prestigious business awards in Great Britain could only be achieved not just by all of us here at Celtic & Co, but also because of all the contributions from our suppliers and of course all of our customers.” – Nick Whitworth
Stay tuned for yet more exciting news on our Royal visit from The Lord Lieutenant Colonel Bolitho (the Queen’s representative in Cornwall) who will be making the award presentation on behalf of Her Majesty. He will be accompanied by Councillor Mary May, the Chairman of Cornwall Council on 25th July. We plan to have a big tea party for our visitors and staff to celebrate our win.
