2015 marked the very first year of the Kent Charity Awards and on Thursday evening Hugh, Andy, Louise and Sherene attended the prestigious event.
The aim of the 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 Kent and these unique awards have already become an important date in the third sector diaries. The Kent Charity Awards will be open to both small and large charities whether a branch of a national charity, a small community based charity or a voluntary group.
Diggerland sponsored the awards and last night presented the Children’s Charity of the Year award to winning charity ChYps, an inspiring charity whose purpose is to enable Children and Young people with life-threatening conditions to receive clinical care and support in their place of choice, which is overwhelmingly in their own home.
Each guest at Thursday evenings awards received one complimentary Diggerland ticket each, which went down extremely well with cheers galore for Diggerland throughout the entire evening.
Hosted by BBC TV presenter Rob Smith, the evening was well received with over 210 guests and was also graced with the presence of Bucks Fizz, local MP Rehman Chishti and the Mayor of Medway.
