Dorset Based Venus Awards welcomes their first ever official Bus!

The first ever Venus Awards Bus was unveiled at the Yellow Buses Depot in Bournemouth. Venus Awards founder Tara Howard and a group of ladies, including Venus Awards Ambassadors, former winners and some of the Yellow Buses team, gathered to mark the occasion with some celebratory photos.

The Venus Awards have been recognising and rewarding local business woman in Dorset since 2009 and have since expanded into 8 other regions in the UK including Devon and Southampton, with future plans to expand into several more regions in the coming years, and have an international presence by 2017.

When asked about what it was like to see the first ever Venus Awards Bus, founder of the awards Tara Howard said “Seeing the Venus Awards on the bus has reminded me of how far the awards have come and spurred me on to take them even further and continue to change people’s lives.”

The Venus Awards bus will be seen around Bournemouth and Poole encouraging members of the public to nominate deserving local business woman to be recognised and rewarded for their efforts. 2015 will mark the 6th annual Dorset Venus Awards and this year’s nominations open at the Venus Awards Website on the 31st March 2015 and close on the 28thMay 2015.
