Club Doncaster Foundation’s health and wellbeing officer Lauren Cuttell was voted the Doncaster Business Hero at Doncaster Chamber’s Awards ceremony.

Since the COVID-19 emergency began, Doncaster Chamber of Commerce has heard of many inspiring efforts from businesses, not-for-profit organisations and individuals from all over the region who have made a significant contribution to the Doncaster community.

The campaign was launched over the summer of 2020 to help celebrate the endeavours and outstanding contribution of the region’s business and not-for-profit community and the professionals within it – those who have gone the extra mile to help with the Coronavirus crisis.

A live vote took place during the virtual awards ceremony in March. Lauren was nominated for her commitment to keeping the Doncaster community fit and healthy during 12 months of various lockdowns with creative and innovative stay-home solutions which made up the Foundation’s Home Goals campaign.

Other nominees included Keegan Loveday of the Crown Hotel Bawtry, who after being furloughed started volunteering at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Tom Bracha of Yellow Bus Catering, who cooked over 500 meals every day for local NHS staff at Doncaster Royal Infirmary last April.

Doncaster Chamber President Jill Wood said: “Over the past 12 months we have heard some amazing stories from the Doncaster Business Hero nominees of how individuals and businesses were going above and beyond.

“Doncaster Chamber is deeply committed to championing Doncaster’s private and third sectors and celebrating the work that takes place within it. The Doncaster Business Hero award that was awarded to Lauren at Club Doncaster was thoroughly deserved.”
