To receive a Queen’s Award for Innovation you have to achieve something pretty special. And a small team in Barnsley have done just that. Vamoosh have been recognised for their unique, Pet Hair Dissolver Product. Dame Hilary Chapman, Lord-Lieutenant for South Yorkshire paid Vamoosh a special visit to present the award and I was there to cover the event.
Alongside the current team, staff who have since retired or moved on elsewhere were invited back to share in the sense of collective success. This is one of the final awards from Queen Elizabeth’s reign and it will stay with Vamoosh, as a badge of honour and quality, for the next five years. It was really great to be part of the celebrations. Thanks to Evie Herbert for inviting me along.
