You can celebrate the hard work of a charity close to your heart and its dedicated volunteers and trustees with a nomination for the Kent Charity Awards 2022.
It’s free to nominate your chosen charity and the deadline for all entries is Monday, June 6.
The awards acknowledge the hard work, commitment and selflessness of charities across the county.
“The Kent Charity Awards are already a great celebration of the work of the charity sector within our local communities, be it on a county basis or more locally,” says head judge Susan Robinson.
“Charities have had a challenging two years, and there may be more to come; the need for their services is increasing against a background of reduced income.”
For the Kent charities that are nominated, being part of the awards can help provide much-needed exposure, increase stakeholder funding and boost staff morale so volunteers can continue delivering an extraordinary service.
Since the awards were set up seven years ago, a number of annual accolades have been handed out to well-deserved causes up and down the county, including Volunteer of the Year and Trustee of the Year.
“The judges are looking forward to receiving entries reflecting the varied and important work that charities do,” adds Susan, who is also a partner at Kreston Reeves. “We are all proud to be sponsors of these great local awards.”
To be included in this year’s awards, charities must submit their application before Monday, June 6. The Kent Charity Awards are free to enter and open to both large and small charities in the county.
The awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, September 8. Find more details here.
This year, the awards are supported by Kreston Reeves, Kent County Council, Medway Council, CC Works, Kent Community Foundation, AMEY, CAF Bank, Financial Advice and Services, the KM Group, Brachers and A-Plan Insurance.
