Good causes across the county could gain some well-deserved recognition at the fifth annual Kent Charity Awards.

The event gives organisations a chance to showcase their work, increase funding and boost staff morale.

Children and Families picked up the top prize at the 2018 ceremony, as it was named Kent Charity of the Year.

"Without this sector society would be a poorer place and we need to acknowledge its positive impact.

"We look forward to receiving lots of entries."

Ian Townsend-Blazier from Children and Families said: "When we applied to be part of the Kent Charity Awards we never imagined we would end up being the overall winner.

"We never doubted the good work we do and the difference we make to those we see and work with, but as a charity we are quite small in stature, with a big heart to make a difference across

the county.

"We would fully recommend being a part of the Kent Charity Awards - you have nothing to lose, only everything to gain."
