We know that we would not be where we are today without our amazing staff. That's why, in our 150th birthday year, we are celebrating teams and individuals with a special award. Every month, we select worthy winners to be our Evelina 150 Stars.
This December, we created five special categories to recognise our final Evelina 150 Stars of the year, who were awarded at our end of year staff celebration event.
