Over the decades, Ruddocks has undergone a significant transformation. We've expanded not just the services and products we offer our clients, but also our commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

So, we were immensely proud to be recognised amongst leading Lincolnshire businesses at the recent 2024 Lincolnshire Business Awards; being shortlisted for both The ‘Planet Saver’ and The ‘Community Champion’ awards, and subsequently being crowned winners of The Planet Saver Award!

🔹 The 'Planet Saver' Award - recognises an organisation with sustainability at the heart of their business, fully committed to sustainable best practice and making the world a better and safer place.

🔹 The 'Community Champion' Award - recognises an organisation that facilitates, participates and enables community engagement, and demonstrates the power of giving back.

Awards to celebrate achievement and innovation

Organised by the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and Karis Hildred Events, these awards covered nine categories, including diversity, entrepreneurship, people development and contribution to farming. They highlight and celebrate the outstanding contributions made by businesses of all sizes and sectors in Lincolnshire.

Following our nominations, we were invited to present our progress and the impact we have made, together with our plans for the future. You can watch short snippets of what we had to say, here:

Winning on the journey to sustainability

Over 300 guests from businesses across Lincolnshire attended the awards event at The Lincolnshire Showground on 15th March 2024 and were warmly welcomed by the event's host and compere, Paul Hughes, an award-winning speaker and former UK military Special Operator.

Winning The 'Planet Saver' award is a tremendous recognition of our 15-year journey towards sustainability and means a great deal to each of us. However, we cannot say we are 'saving the planet' by ourselves. In fact, when it comes to taking care of our environment and community, it's all about the small, collective steps that add up, and if we can encourage other businesses to do the same, the positive difference we can make is all that bit bigger.

A big thank you to Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and Karis Hildred Events, as well as Shakespeare Martineau, sponsors of The ‘Planet Saver’ category. We would also like to congratulate all the very deserving businesses who were nominated, winners, and highly commended in their categories, it has been truly inspirational to hear so many success stories from businesses and the people driving them forward across the county.

This award only reinforces our mission and highlights our genuine commitment. While it's wonderful to know we are going in the right direction, this is not our final stop, our journey continues!
