Swale Action to End Domestic Abuse gets award from KM Charity Team

Our charity of the year – Swale Action to End Domestic Abuse (Sateda) – has received a badge of honour at an awards ceremony staged by the KM Charity Team.

It was one of a select group of good causes to be highly commended as inaugural recipient of the KM Charity Mark award in recognition of its work in the community.

The accolade was presented at the KM Charity Team Forum at Kent Scouts HQ, Lower Grange Farm in Maidstone.

The forum also brought together causes from across the county for targeted workshops on topics including fundraising, grant applications, insurance, accountancy and top tips for applications to be KM Charity of the Year 2016.

Sessions were hosted by expert speakers from MHA MacIntyre Hudson, Jelf Insurance and Funding for All.

Delegates included school staff, governors and PTA members for a KM Walk to School masterclass as well as guidance on initiatives involving green travel, road safety, pupil voice and literacy.

Simon Dolby, of the KM Charity Team, said: “I am delighted to reveal the winners of the new KM Charity Mark awards and commend the causes for their tireless efforts.

“It was no easy task but we have selected what we believe are 50 of the very best charities in the county to receive this special honour.”
