Then one day, BOOM! There it was, the email we had all been hoping and waiting for! The whole office was overjoyed to read the opening line: “I’m delighted to let you know you’ve been shortlisted in the Soil Association’s BOOM awards and are invited to our Award Ceremony at London’s Borough Market Hall on the 11th May, where the winners will be announced”.
Of course, there were no questions in our minds: we had to be at the award ceremony. It sounded like a wonderful place and opportunity to spend time with likeminded people in the name of all things organic!
The evening was a great success: our managing director and his mother attended the award ceremony and said they had a really “fun evening” with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and a lot of tasty, wholesome organic food available from the companies who were attending the event. There was even a live DJ set and some goodie bags filled with samples of some incredible organic teas, sauces and much more!
In the end, we didn’t win! However, we did receive our lovely finalist certificate and had a selfie-style photo taken to celebrate, and in our opinion, it really was a win for us all at Naissance just to be shortlisted. We are so proud that we made it this far, considering that there were about sixteen other organisations up against us in our entered category! This was our first entry to any sort of award and we will definitely be looking to enter more in the future, so watch this space!
