The best of Welsh produce is proud to sponsor a prestigious event to mark the exceptional people of Wales and their great personal achievements at the Senedd, Cardiff Bay, on Thursday (10th March).
The annual St David Awards are the highest accolades that Welsh Government confers on our citizens nationally and they recognise and celebrate the exceptional achievements of people in Wales. The Awards acknowledge people who are making a real difference, either at home or abroad, and they reflect and promote the aspirations of Wales and its citizens.
There are nine St David Awards, each award given in a specific category of activity and achievement; the first eight are publicly nominated and the three finalists in each are decided upon by a team of independent advisers. The winner of each award is then selected by the First Minister of the Welsh Government. They are Bravery, Citizenship, Culture, Enterprise, Innovation and Technology, International, Sport, Young Person and the First Minister’s own Special Award, the winner of which is chosen solely by First Minister himself.
“These are Wales’ "awards of awards" - the natural destination for all those who have won other sectoral or community awards,” said Gwyn Howells, HCC’s Chief Executive. “Hybu Cig Cymru-Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) is delighted to provide quality PGI Welsh Beef as a centerpiece of a special menu to honour the winners of the nine categories awarded on the evening.
“These awards reflect a changing, modern, vibrant Wales, a country with a growing reputation as a confident and clever nation valuing innovation, community spirit, and above all, its people.We’re delighted to enable Wales’ premier beef brand to share a table with such inspirational role models,” said Mr. Howells.
