Kenward Trust are Double Winners in Kent Charity Awards!
23rd October 2017 /
At a glittering awards ceremony held on Thursday 16th March at the Mercure Great Danes Hotel, in Hollingbourne, the Kenward Trust were recognised for their work by winning the Care category at the Kent Charity Awards and also overall Charity of the Year 2017.
The aim of these awards is to showcase the hard work and perseverance that charities and voluntary groups undertake to make the lives of others better. There are currently no similar awards in the county and the Kent Charity Awards have become an important date in the third sector diaries. The charity awards were open to both small and large charities whether a branch of a national charity, a small community based charity or a voluntary group.
David Philpott, Chief Executive at Kenward Trust said:
“For nearly 50 years the Kenward Trust has been providing residential rehabilitation services from our projects across the county as well as innovative education programmes in schools and more recently befriending services in Prisons. To have this kind of work, which is often seen as unglamorous when compared with other charities, recognised by winning these awards, sends a very positive message to our many staff who work tirelessly in very challenging situations day in and day out. We are grateful to the award organisers for making it possible for us to showcase our services in this way and overwhelmed to have achieved Charity of the Year”.
