With the Leicester Curry Awards racing towards us at phenomenal speed, we thought it was high time to introduce you to some of the people who have made it all possible – our category sponsors.

In our first introduction, we’re getting to know Hayles Accountants, who have come on board as sponsors of the Best New Restaurant Category.

As a testament to their success, in 2016 Hayles were named Employer of the Year at the East Midlands Chamber Leicestershire Business Awards and won the regional award from the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) for Commitment to People Development.

Company Director Shelley Harvey loves a Chicken Balti. She tells us why Hayles chose to come on board:

“We sponsored the Leicester Curry Awards as it was a great opportunity to support local businesses across Leicestershire. We are extremely excited to be a category sponsor for best new restaurant – starting a business can be extremely challenging and we will be proud to present the award to the well-deserved winner.”
