With nominations now open for this year’s Pride of Andover Awards, the spotlight is on the Inspiring Others Award, sponsored by R&B Industrial Ltd and The TLC Counselling Hub.

The Inspiring Others Award is an extremely popular category, which recognises an individual who through the exceptional nature of their actions has inspired others to overcome barriers to their own achievement.

R&B Industrial and TLC Counselling Hub have joined to sponsor this category for 2022.

At The Pride of Andover Awards recent launch event, Nicky Bates owner of TLC Counselling Hub, said: ''This year TLC Counselling Hub and R&B Industrial Ltd decided to joint sponsor the Inspiration Award Category. Personally for me, having won this award last year and having attended The Pride of Andover Awards, a great event, where it is great to see so many people in one room having so much fun, a fantastic event that I wanted to be able to sponsor this year.

"After discussing with my husband (the director of R&B Industrial) we decided it would be great to join together and sponsor this fantastic award.''

Anna from R&B Industrial Ltd added: ''We would love for people to be nominating the fantastic people who done amazing things within Andover, nominations are open until the 31st August, make sure you get your nominations in.''
