Organiser Rachel Kay said: "The standard of entries was just excellent this year. We’ve received more entries than ever too, which makes it even harder for our judges to decide on a shortlist.

"We’re very grateful for the time that both our volunteer and sponsor judges spent reading the applications, and absolutely thrilled that 45 different businesses/organisations are represented across the categories.

"Huge congratulations to all our 2022 finalists, we can’t wait to meet and celebrate with you all, and our sponsors and supporters too at the awards ceremony. We’re also looking forward to meeting our very first Apprentice of the Year finalists; well done Jak, Charles and Shannon!
