Forbes Solicitors is delighted to have beaten off tough competition to be awarded Corporate Social Responsibility Programme of the Year at the prestigious North West Football Awards.
The awards recognise the region's footballing excellence, both on and off the pitch. The firm was up against Manchester City, The Co-operative Group, The Football League and The Football Pools.
Forbes' Managing Partner John Barker comments, "We are over the moon to have won the award, especially when up against these national names. We invest significant amounts of time in supporting local grassroots football and community sporting projects so we are thrilled that our commitment and hard work has been recognised and rewarded at such a prestigious awards ceremony."
Forbes is actively involved in sponsoring and supporting football and sporting projects in the whole of Lancashire that help enhance communities in which the firm has offices. In Preston these include the Central Lancs Junior Football League, The Mid Lancs Colts Junior Football League, and Preston United.
Ed Chamberlin of Sky Sports hosted the evening which saw Gordon Taylor pick up the Lifetime Achievement Award.
