Cirencester Corporate Social Enterprise Award of the Year
Winner - Lounge Design
Adam Vines, director of Lounge Design, said: "Social responsibility for the community we work in shouldn't just be the domain of larger business. Small organisations can make a huge impact on their local environment. Work shouldn't just be about the bottom line.
"Lounge Design's ethic is that the team also needs to enjoy coming in to work and being involved in the business as a whole. We also are passionate about giving back to the community and feel this is a crucial element of our work - we spend a percentage of our time every month delivering charitable work to support worthy causes."

Emily Hepworth, from Persephone Violet, said: "Winning both the young entrepreneur award and retailer of the year was a massive highlight for Persephone Violet.
