The Awards are strongly supported by the Gatwick Diamond business community.  The Headline Sponsors were Gatwick Airport, NatWest, Thakeham Group and Extech Cloud. The Evening started with a Pre-Dinner Reception sponsored by BGF and was rounded off with the now highly anticipated After-Show Party.

This year's ceremony was hosted by Shaun Williamson - a familiar face on stage and screen, starting with his break-through role as Barry Evans in Eastenders.  More recently he has supported Ricky Gervais in TV comedy classics including Extras.  The audience of 600 were also entertained by Xavier, fresh from stealing the show as contenders on BBC One's "All Together NOW". 

Gary said : “Thank you my team and absolutely EVERYBODY who supports us in what we do, you're amazing!”

The award was sponsored by  University of Sussex Business School who said: 
"LLJ demonstrate high levels of commitment to providing high quality support, development and confidence to young people preparing them for the world of work whilst at school. The emphasis is local and the extent of community engagement is genuine, longstanding and impressive." "At the heart of the foundation is skills training and development for school aged children, who ordinarily would very likely be left behind. Equally impressive are the benefits brought to partner organisations and their staff." 

"Since previous visits to LLJ, it is clear that the foundation is now snowballing with many new partners now approaching the team to join up."
