Big Ticks for businesses in the community.

TWO Deeside based companies have been award Big Ticks at the annual Business in the Community Awards for Excellence.

Airbus UK and BHP Billiton have been recognised for putting responsible business practice at the heart of their operations.

Oil and gas company BHP Billiton received the Post Office Rural Action Award for its Enabling the Communities programme and the Impact on Society Award for its leadership and business integration with overall impact on society.

Short-listed in the latter category for a national award - to be announced at the Royal Albert Hall in London in July - Mike Kelly, vice president of BHP Billiton's Liverpool Bay Asset, said: 'We are very proud to have been awarded the Big Tick for our community investment programme.

'Our operations in Liverpool Bay have led to a significant positive impact ona small rural community in North Wales.'
