The 2015 Black British Business Award results were announced today by a panel of thirteen leading figures. The sold out ceremony congratulated newsreader and journalist, Sir Trevor McDonald as he was awarded Lifetime Contribution Achievement.
McDonald, now 76, continues to work as a journalist, releasing: The Mafia with Trevor McDonald earlier this year. The well known face of nightly news was honoured for his services as a broadcaster, as well as being a role model for the black community.
The (BBBA) ceremony focuses on talented black business men and women who work in Great Britain.
The sponsors created the award as a way to break down sterotypes and shine recognition on the achievements of black people who help build the British economy.
