The Southern Co-operative Shines at Solent Business Awards 2016

The Southern Co-operative took to the stage at last night’s Solent Business Awards after winning second place in the ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ award and a highly commended accolade for the ‘Company of the Year’ category.

Gemma Lacey, Director of Sustainability and Communications at The Southern Co-operative, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be recognised as local leaders against national companies such as Amey construction and Churchill Retirement Living. It is a testament to all of our colleagues across the business who work hard to make our business the success that it is both within its local communities and on a wider scale!”
