Peaches Golding

Peaches Golding was left speechless after winning the Outstanding Contribution to Business in Bristol and Bath Award, at the 2015 Women in Business Awards.

Peaches, who is a non-executive director of the Trust was presented with the award by Professor Jane Harrington, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of the West of England (UWE) at a gala dinner at the Bristol City Centre Marriott.

Unlike the other winners, Peaches did not know that she was being considered for the prestigious prize, which is sponsored by the UWE.

After receiving her award Peaches said "I'm speechless. I came tonight relaxed waiting to watch all these fantastic women who have received awards and I'm delighted I was able to do that, but nobody told me I'd get to walk away with this award. I'm delighted to be here and to be able to see so many inspiring people".

Peaches was appointed an OBE in 2009, is a trustee of the SS Great Britain and chair of the ITV West Country Viewer Advisory Panel. Peaches became the first black female High Sheriff of the County of Bristol in 2010.
