YOUNG PERSON Katie Cairns,Cardif Pinnacle


Being nominated for the Young Person Award, was a wonderful surprise. It was also a real pleasure to meet with the judges and talk to them about my career, life and future aspirations. Being named as a finalist and then attending the incredibly well organised awards ceremony, with the support of such fabulous friends and family was so exciting. I was really moved, and delighted, by the kind words that people said and wrote about me.


Sitting at the back of the venue on the night, I never expected to win anything and when my name was called out I was astounded! From start to finish this has been an experience that I will never forget. Katie Cairns, Cardif Pinnacle

Im absolutely delighted for Debenhams Ottaway to be recognised with the Award for Best Corporate Social Responsibility. I know the category was keenly contested, with initially 30 applications being received. The firm was selected following a thorough selection process which makes winning all the more satisfying. Our CSR programme involves everyone in the firm. It is a real team effort with so many DO people giving freely of their time and energy. Its excellent recognition for all at DO.
