Left-Handed specialist Anything Left-Handed Ltd, based in Belmont, Surrey, has won the London Regional Finals of the UK E-Commerce Awards 2002, for its web business at /. Organised by the Government initiative 'UK online for business', the Awards are now in their fourth year and are designed to recognise and reward those organisations that have demonstrated excellence through the use of the Internet.

Anything Left-Handed have 8 staff in their offices and warehouse in Belmont, which is their base for processing orders and sending left-handed products to most of the countries around the world. Two of the Directors, Keith Milsom and Denis Zekic proudly accepted their award and the £2,000 prize on 20th June at the awards ceremony held at The Globe Theatre, London. Their website was the winner in the Micro-Business category, for businesses with less than 10 staff, and recognised the huge impact that the Internet has had on the company's already well-established business.

The website was designed and produced entirely in-house and acts as a portal for the largest resource of information on left-handedness on the Internet. The site utilises Actinic software as a platform for the e-commerce operation, enabling visitors to purchase on-line from a huge range of over 200 specially designed left-handed products.

From its small beginnings 35 years ago as a retail shop in London's West End, Anything Left-Handed has evolved into a mail order and internet retailer as well as a global wholesaler of left-handed items to other companies, mainly due to its web site which was launched only a year ago. As Keith Milsom comments, our web site has allowed us to communicate with potential customers and market our business worldwide at very little cost, making international development possible.

Following on from their success at the Regional E-commerce Awards, Anything Left-Handed now moves forward to the National Finals on 3rd July at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
