Applegate Properties MD shortlisted for a Sue Ryder award

Applegate Properties MD shortlisted for a Sue Ryder award

21st Apr, 2017

We’re very proud to say that our MD Amy Wray, has been shortlisted for a Sue Ryder Women of Achievement award!

The accolades reward women who have excelled within a variety of fields, such as business, education, sport, technology, science and art.

Amy has been nominated for the ‘Women of Achievement in Business’ award, which acknowledges ladies who have started their own firms and, subsequently, achieved great things. But not only that, the individual honoured must have also overcome obstacles on their road to success.

The awards – turning 31 this year – are taking place on Friday 12th May at the Royal Armouries, Leeds. Raising funds for the Sue Ryder charity, the afternoon will kick off with welcome drinks, giving the attendees the opportunity to mingle. Then, shortly after the three-course meal has been served, the awards ceremony will begin and the winners will be announced!

When we asked Amy how she felt about being shortlisted, she commented: “I’m over the moon to be put forward for such a great award! It’s taken a lot of hard graft, dedication and late nights to get Applegate Properties to where it is today. But that’s not just mine – my team’s too!

“So, I feel honoured to be acknowledged to be nominated for this award – it’s not only for me, it’s for all of us.”

The Sue Ryder Awards are run by the hospices of the same namesake. Sue – a Yorkshire woman – was a figure of the 20th century who dedicated her life to relieving women of fear, worry and suffering. Her legacy now lives on through the work of Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice and the 12 other care centres across the UK.

Even if Amy doesn’t win, this shortlist is another honour that she can add to her growing list of achievements. We are all very excited for her and wish her the very best of luck for the afternoon!
