We are pleased to announce that Catching Lives has won the ‘Community and Environment Charity of the Year’ at the Kent Charity Awards for the second year running.
We were also delighted that one of our trustees Glennis Turrell was nominated for Trustee of the year and one of our volunteers, Sheila Miller as volunteer of the year.
The gala evening was held at the Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone on the 10th March, and was attended by representatives from 18 local charities. The overall Kent Charity of the Year was awarded to Abigail’s Footsteps, a charity launched in 2010 which is focussed on improving stillbirth bereavement.
We are delighted to have been nominated for, and of course to have won this award which recognises the hard work and support that so many people from our local community give us. We rely on those who generously give their time to volunteer with us and also all of those who undertake fundraising, donate much needed items or simply raise awareness about what we do. Without this help we could not provide many of our services to the homeless and vulnerably housed in the Canterbury area. Thank you to all who support us and we look forward to next year’s awards!
