Harvester Crowned Winner Of Best Family Restaurant At Tommy's Baby-Friendly Awards
18th annual ceremony sets new voting record!
National baby charity Tommy's announced the winners of its annual Baby-Friendly Awards which took place at the Landmark Hotel, in London on Friday 22nd March.
Since 1995, the Tommy's Baby-Friendly Awards has recognised the vital support that friends, family and health professionals offer couples who suffer a pregnancy complication or loss of a baby. The Awards also acknowledge the organisations that make a real difference to families' lives all over the UK, meeting their everyday needs and more.
Working in partnership with Bounty, Tommy's was able to invite the parenting club's 2.5 million members to vote for their favorite baby-friendly companies, and a record 32,130 parents voted throughout January and February 2013 - proving that parents really are standing up and rewarding the companies that go that extra mile to be truly 'baby-friendly'.
Votes were cast in a wide variety of categories, ranging from best family supermarket to most eco-friendly baby company.
Helen Worrall from Harvester Salad & Grill commented: "The Tommy's Baby-Friendly Awards have set the benchmark for companies in the UK, and we are delighted and honoured to have been named Best Family Restaurant."
"Harvester has invested in ensuring that our offer and our Young Guest menu meets the needs of families in the 21st century. It is testament to the hard work by our team members across our 206 restaurants that we have been named winners of this year's award."
The ceremony was hosted by David and Carrie Grant, and the awards were presented by an array of other celebrity guests including Sadie Frost, Amanda Mealing, Helen McCrory, Danielle O'Hara, Katy Hill, Kirsty McCabe, Terri Dwyer, Nancy Sorrell, Sam Mann, Sarah Cawood, The Mac Twins, and Cordelia Bugeja.
Tommy's Chief Executive, Jane Brewin, said: "Being a parent isn't always easy, so the efforts made by organisations who really strive to take parents' needs into account go a long way to making life easier. The Tommy's Baby-Friendly Awards give us a way to thank the individuals and companies who go above and beyond to reduce the stresses of parenthood for mums and dads across the UK."
