The Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards, organised by the Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by RNN Group, are thrilled to announce that Amy Garcia will be hosting the highly anticipated awards ceremony. Set to take place on Friday, 3rd November 2023, at the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham, the event will celebrate the exceptional achievements of businesses in Barnsley and Rotherham.
Amy Garcia is a well-known face on TV screens across Yorkshire, having presented the region’s most-watched news program, BBC Look North, for an impressive 10 years. With her straight-talking nature and ability to put people at ease, Amy has become a trusted and respected figure. Throughout the pandemic, she continued to deliver news to local audiences when they needed it most.
Known for her adventurous spirit, Amy has never shied away from a challenge. From cycling the 250-mile Tour de France route across Yorkshire on a tandem for Sport Relief to dragging the Look North sofa 150 miles through snowstorms and torrential rain, she has demonstrated her dedication and determination. Amy’s commitment to charity has seen her abseil down a 120-foot building, be strapped to an aeroplane, and plunge into caves beneath the Yorkshire Dales, all for the noble cause of Children in Need.
Shane Young, Operations Director at Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, expressed his excitement about Amy’s involvement: “We are delighted to have Amy Garcia as the host of the Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards. With her impressive journalistic background and her unwavering dedication to her community, Amy is the perfect choice to celebrate and honour the achievements of businesses in our region.”
