Oxygen Sponsors South Tyneside’s PROUD Awards

The PROUD Awards celebrate the achievements of employees from across South Tyneside Council, South Tyneside Homes, and local schools. Oxygen Finance was honoured to sponsor this worthwhile event and our colleagues, Madison Allen, Client Success Manager for South Tyneside Council, and James Himsworth, Procurement Consultant, had the privilege of attending the awards evening.

As well as sponsoring the event, we were also invited to present the Sustainable South Tyneside Award with Cllr Ernest Gibson, Lead Member of Neighbourhoods and Climate Change. Congratulations to all the award winners celebrated during the evening.

Oxygen Finance work in partnership with South Tyneside Council to deliver the Council’s Supplier Incentive Programme, which enables suppliers to be paid early, boosting cash flow, fuelling growth and job creation in the local economy. Over 100,000 invoices have been paid early through the programme and more than £3.9million generated in rebates for the Council.

Following the awards, Oxygen’s James Himsworth, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to attend this event that is clearly valued by all the staff who are celebrated for excellence.  It’s heart-warming to see all the outstanding contributions nominees are making on behalf of residents and colleagues alike”

Many thanks to the team at South Tyneside for inviting us and hosting the event – it was great to see the team and celebrate the contributions of all those who work to support the region.
