*Eamonn McManus, Chairman of both the St Helens Economy Board and St Helens R.F.C, said: “Last night was an opportunity to celebrate the role of businesses, and other organisations who commit investments not only into their own organisations, but also into raising the profile of St Helens as a place to live, learn, visit and work.
“Great businesses nurture aspirations and pride, they inspire others, and above all, help to create jobs for our communities and wealth for the town.
“All the businesses here tonight participate and contribute to the economy of St Helens and I believe that there is a clear link between the prosperity and success of individual enterprises and the success of the town as a whole.”*
