Double success at Women in Business Awards


Hey Girls has scooped two awards at this year’s Women in Business Awards, hosted by Business Women Scotland and Women’s Enterprise Scotland.

Celia Hodson for Hey Girls won Start Up Business of the Year and Social Impact of the Year at the award ceremony held in Glasgow on Friday evening (Friday 2 November).

The Women in Business Awards are a collaboration between Business Women Scotland (BWS) and Women’s Enterprise Scotland (WES) and aim to mark the achievements of the growing numbers of women-led businesses. The awards celebrate the entrepreneurial talents of women across Scotland, and help to create more business role models to inspire the next generation of leading women.

Celia Hodson said: “The whole Hey Girls team is absolutely delighted to have been recognised at these awards. It’s particularly lovely to have won an award for Social Impact, because making a real impact on people’s lives is the drive behind what we do.

“Since launching in January, Hey Girls has donated more than 1,300,000 boxes of products to women and girls in communities right across the UK. We couldn’t have done this without our amazing customers who choose to make a huge social impact every time they buy our products, so to them we say a massive thank you – this award is really for you.”
