John G Hogg Funeral Directors is proud to announce that we have been nominated for the prestigious Sunderland Echo Portfolio Business Awards. Being recognised by our local community is something that is especially important to us as we continue to work side by side with people going through an incredibly difficult moment in their lives.
At John G Hogg, our team of funeral directors work closely with people throughout Wearside from our funeral homes in Hendon, Pallion and Farringdon, guiding families through difficult moments and offering our expertise and services in whatever capacity that seems most appropriate.
As such, we were delighted to be nominated in two categories at this year’s event – John G Hogg will be standing should to shoulder with other leading companies on Wearside, competing for both the Small Business of the Year Award and the Business of the Year Award. John Hogg, Director of John G Hogg Funeral Directors, was quick to point to the “hard work, dedication and professionalism” of the John G Hogg team in obtaining nominations for two separate categories.
“Through the nominations for both awards, it celebrates excellence and professional commitment in one of the most difficult and challenging areas of serving the public,” he went on to say.
“The team at John G Hogg Family Funeral Directors has set a very high standard and are delighted to be nominated.”
This year’s awards will be presented at a ceremony taking place at the Stadium of Light on Thursday, October 15, and will bring together community and business leaders throughout Wearside.
The headline sponsor for this year’s awards is Make It Sunderland, who is sponsoring the overall Business of the Year Award as well as this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
This year’s Sunderland Echo Portfolio Business Awards will also see the addition of a new category which will recognise the contribution that social enterprises have for families in the city.
