On the 28th of September the Just for Women team attended Northumbria in Bloom 2022 at Gates Head Newcastle Tyne and Wear where Debbie was shortlisted for Small Business where she had been working extremely hard throughout the spring. From renovating the whole garden, planting and assemble a seating area under our plumb tree for the centre’s clients and staff to enjoy and relax whilst on a break. Although Debbie dedicated most of her free time on this project, volunteers and individuals helped and supported her through harsh weather conditions such as our 40c heat wave from July-August, this did not stop Debbie.

Once the team had arrived, they were presented with their table and received hot drink and food throughout the award ceremony, while waiting for our category the team mixed and networked with other business and organisation that also attended NIB which was a great opportunity for them to mix and grow. Finally, the category for Small Business was up, anxiously waiting was Debbie and the team as they knew how hard she had been working and put lots of dedication towards this project. After all the nominees where listed finally the winner for Gold was announced . . . . and it was Debbie! Debbie then received her award with pride and the biggest smile on her face along with her fellow colleagues that were extremely proud of her.

After the ceremony had an interval the next categories were up for Best in Class for Small Business Premises and Community champion which Debbie yet again WON! Debbie retrieved her award and presented it on stage whilst the judge read out a description of her hard work and the Just for Women Centre.
