Wetwheels South East Shortlisted for a Business Award

Wetwheels South East

We have been shortlisted for the Mission Possible Award 2023 at this year’s  Small Awards.

Now in its seventh year, The Small Awards is a nationwide search for the smallest and greatest firms in the UK, across all sectors. It is organised annually by Small Business Britain, which champions, inspires and accelerates the nation’s 5.5 million small firms.

Wetwheels South East was founded in 2018 and aim to provide a unique opportunity for disabled and disadvantaged people of all ages - including those with multiple, profound and complex impairments - to access the water. Central is active participation - helping to broaden aspirations, increase confidence and directly impact on health and wellbeing.

Wetwheels South East has been chosen as one of just eight finalists for the Mission Possible Award 2023 that recognises a small business that is driven by its mission over and above financial performance, they benefits groups, their community and society more widely.

With eleven different categories, the Small Awards celebrate the dynamism and resilience of the UK’s small business sector, across everything from sustainability heroes, to digital stars, to long-standing family businesses.

“The Small Awards is all about celebrating the incredible small business owners who are at the heart of the economy and communities,” said Michelle Ovens CBE, Founder of Small Business Britain “They are an opportunity to recognise and applaud the passion and tenacity of the nation’s small firms, particularly during such turbulent times.  Wetwheels South East should be incredibly proud of being shortlisted for this award and we can’t wait to celebrate with them in May.”

Andy Roberts MBE from Wetwheels South East said “As a Director of Wetwheels South East since its inception in 2018 I have participated in and watched with pride the huge success of this operation to date.  To see the faces of our participant base enjoying experiences they never envisaged they would ever be able to participate in is a joy in itself. I am exceptionally proud of the whole team for the recognition this award brings to our organisation. It highlights the hard work and dedication they all devote to Wetwheels South East”

Judged by a panel of industry experts, the winners of all categories, along with the overall winner of Small Business of the Year, will be announced at a glittering awards night in London on 18 May 2022.

This event follows the incredible return of the in-person Small Awards ceremony last year, which had been held online during the pandemic. The ceremony will this year be held at St Mary’s church in London, with plans underway for a night of entertainment, inspiration and celebration for UK’s greatest small businesses.
