Winner of fourth prize announced in Test Valley Business Awards 2019

The winner of the fourth Test Valley Business Awards 2019 entry prize has been announced…

As the end of this year’s Test Valley Business Awards entry period draws closer, there are only a handful of chances to win a spot prize, which have been gifted to entrants chosen at random throughout the entry period.

The fourth winner of several such prizes offered during the entry period was chosen this week by Jan Lumsden of Kutchenhaus’ new Romsey showroom, winner of the Awards’ third entry prize giveaway.

Picking a name entirely at random from a hat, Jan chose Lisa Armstrong of Active Staff Ltd. in Andover who has won a handmade gift donated by Porter’s Emporium.

Whilst selecting the Awards’ fourth entry prize winner, Jan was also presented with her own prize; a bottle of Veuve Cliquot from the Co-Op Distribution Centre, based in Andover.

Jan Lumsden commented of her entry prize and her experience of entering the Awards:

“I’m delighted to have won an entry prize as part of the Test Valley Business Awards this year, and recommend other businesses in the area enter. It’s a great way of showing everyone you’re proud of your business, and celebrating your achievements.”

This year, there are no fewer than 6 awards categories to choose from, sponsored by some of the areas most accomplished and well-established businesses.
