Hopefully Sandwell businesses will perform as well as they did at the Black Country Chamber Awards 2022 back in October, where at least one Sandwell organisation was represented as a finalist in each of the fourteen award categories. 

Five Sandwell businesses were announced as overall winners, while four took ‘highly commended’ awards. Read about the awards ceremony to find out more about Sandwell’s success.
