Alison Holbourn, CEO of Warrington Health Plus says, “I am delighted that the good work of Warrington Health Plus has been recognised by the social enterprise panel and been given the privilege to display their Social Enterprise Mark.
“Not only does this mark give credit to a CIC that is still in its infancy, but it allows us to promote our achievements on the basis of their social, moral and ethical benefits for the people of Warrington.”
