The 2021 NottinghamshireLive Business Awards is just around the corner and we are delighted to announce that this year’s worthy finalists have been selected. The awards ceremony will take place in collaboration with Champions (UK) PLC on October 14th – more information can be found on the official website.

The awards celebrate the companies and individuals who help make Nottinghamshire’s business community a thriving and dynamic community. Every year, companies, employees and entrepreneurs achieve incredible things – and the awards give them the chance to be recognized for their work.

We believe that this year’s awards have a special meaning as they give us an opportunity to celebrate after a difficult time for companies. The coronavirus pandemic has put companies and business people in difficult situations, forcing many to cut back on their work or to close them temporarily entirely.

Despite these obstacles, members of the Nottinghamshire business community worked diligently to succeed in the face of adversity – and that dedication and skill celebrate the awards. Before the awards ceremony, we publish profiles of our finalists so you can find out about them before the big night.

As the name suggests, the Sales and Marketing Award recognizes companies that have demonstrated their ability to deliver outstanding and innovative performance in sales and marketing. The 2021 finalists in this category are:


Donotts make handmade, chunky, ready-to-use donuts that never compromise on taste or customer experience. As one of the UK’s first vegan donut specialists, Donotts has created uniquely flavored and presented donuts since opening a micro-bakery in 2015. Donut walls that add a wow factor to parties and weddings. The company’s rapid success has led it to expand into three locations and now supply a number of restaurants in the East Midlands.
