Petrina Mayson, thumb CEO of Furniture Now! commented: “We still cannot believe that we won the Most Sustainable Business! Achieving the recognition of the business world by winning such a highly regarded award meant a lot to the whole Charity. It has raised our profile and our credibility in the business world enormously. And it was a wonderful night of celebration for the team too!”
