The Cheshire Club Creme de la Creme Awards

Cheshire Legend Sue France has been honoured with a Most Outstanding Achievement Award at the Creme de la Creme Cheshire Business Awards.

The great and the good gathered at Cranage Hall in Cheshire on Friday 17th November as legendary Cheshire businesswoman Sue France was honoured with a Most Outstanding Achievement by Joanna Scott-Aspray founder of the Cheshire Club.

Joanna Scott Aspray said about awarding Sue France:

“When I was thinking about my choice for this category this year, the choice was a pretty easy one! This person is a wife, a mother, a grandma. She’s also a fellow networking host; at 75 years young, this lady shows no signs of slowing down. Our paths first crossed due to Francis House Hospice. She was contributing to their fundraising years before me and then I became a patron. Our efforts were always for our beloved Kirsty Howard to help reach her target. 

We’ve always had mutual respect for one another, offering the same concept just in our own very different styles; connections opportunities, events and plenty of advice but always supporting each other for many years. She is also a patron of the charity "Gift of a Wedding" and also the Butterfly Breast Cancer Awards. So what better time to honour her than in her 75th year on this planet.”

Sue France said:

“I came here to support Joanna and the Cheshire Club. Many of my business group members from Creative Connecting in Cheshire were up for awards and I wanted to cheer them on. I never dreamt there was an extra award and it was for me. I am absolutely thrilled and honoured.

I have known Joanna since I worked for the Kirsty Appeal for Francis House Hospice and now we both hold events which connect people in business. So it means the world that she has chosen me for this particular award.”

Rachael Borman at the AmaSing Arts Charity Foundation won the Overall Excellence Winner Award, presented by Cheshire's Silk Radio, which was a package of business support worth in excess of £11,000 and she said:

“I was shocked and thrilled to win this award as there were so many other amazing and well deserving businesses here.  I am so grateful and it will help enormously with visibility for my charity to then help so many other people. Thank you”
