We are delighted that our CEO Gabby Machell won the ‘Making a Difference Award’ at the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards on Friday 6th December 2019.
The Awards are designed to reward the hard work, dedication, innovation and excellence of everyone working in the not-for-profit sector who is making a positive difference to people’s lives, whether they are supporting children or adults and so Gabby’s award was very well deserved.
Another special award was given to Team Manager Cecilia Adetunji who won ‘Judges Special Recognition Award’, which was collected on her behalf by her colleague Dawn and our Director of Services Mandy Crowford.
The Awards took place at the London Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square and were hosted by Dame Esther Rantzen and Rebecca Wilcox, who presented our winners with their Special Awards.
We are all so proud that Gabby and Cecilia have been recognised for all their dedication and hard work.
