Congleton-based Prism was the proud recipient of the Company of the Year Award sponsored by m-viron, with judges acknowledging Prism’s commitment to providing well paid employment for young people, their continual fund-raising efforts for charitable causes and the links they have forged with local Colleges to motivate youngsters on business studies courses.

Gary Smith, co-Director commented “The team at Prism has been involved in raising money for charity this last twelve months and this award is a pat on the back for each and every one of them for their individual effort. I’m proud of the hard work they have put into fundraising and the recognition is well-deserved.”
