three women from Tharsus Group at NEECC awards

Major awards win for Tharsus Group’s inspiring females

14 November 2022

Hot on the heels of our Make UK success, three of our female colleagues have won major recognition for their inspirational achievements at the North East Chamber of Commerce Inspiring Females Awards on Friday last week.


Kerry Patterson and Mel Stewart won for Tharsus and Universal Wolf respectively, while Sophie Laidlaw of Tharsus was shortlisted in Apprentice category. Kerry and Mel were recognised in particular for their passion and commitment to encouraging and empowering more females to take up careers in engineering, while Sophie’s infectious enthusiasm for her work and how this rubs off on others, resonated strongly with the judges.


Congratulations to all three of them. Worthy winners and we all agree a true inspiration to all.


The NEECC Inspiring Females awards champion the qualities in female colleagues at every level in businesses in our region which engage and inspire those around them to achieve in everything they do. We’re extremely proud that the judges have recognised our three colleagues in this way. It’s a great testament to them and to the values which guide us in every aspect of how we work together and with others across our group.
