One of Wrexham’s biggest companies has been named among the finalists of the 2020 St David Awards by the First Minister.

The national awards celebrate the extraordinary achievements of the people of Wales in categories including bravery; culture; business; innovation, science and technology; sport and young person, as well as two new categories: community spirit, and humanitarian.

Moneypenny, a call-handling services to other businesses based on the Western Gateway in Wrexham, has been shortlisted alongside four other organisations across Wales within the business category.

The company employs around 650 people at its purpose-built headquarters and is committed to having one of the best workplaces in the UK. This commitment has earned them a place on the Sunday Times list of Best Business to Work For, for nearly 10 years.

Last summer Moneypenny co-founder, Rachel Clacher, was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Honour’s List for her contribution to business and the community.

Announcing the finalists, the First Minister said: “I am honoured to name the 2020 St David Awards finalists – what an inspiring group of people we are lucky to have living and working in Wales.

“The awards are a celebration of the people who make Wales a better place to live. Each of the finalists have made a big difference, from saving a life, to overcoming adversity, inspiring others, or supporting a community.

“Every single one of our St David Awards finalists are truly exceptional and a credit to our nation. I look forward to celebrating their achievements at the awards ceremony on Thursday 19 March.”

The final award, the First Minister’s Special Award, is chosen by the First Minister and the winner will be announced at the ceremony in March.
