Gateway into the Community was thrilled to win a Weston Charity Award which means we will be mentored and coached by senior business leaders through the organisation Pilotlight. The Garfield Weston Foundation expanded the Weston Charity Awards to reach more organisations after a successful first year working with charities in the North East. Twelve Charities working in the areas of youth, welfare and community have been selected for awards.
The Garfield Weston Foundation’s Director, Phillippa Charles says:
” We had an amazing response from charities across the North which are tackling some of the toughest challenges.The twelve winning charities are not only doing great work but are ambitious with their plans – we are looking forward to supporting them to achieve their goals.”
Rosmary Theobalds (our Chair of Trustees) and Fiona Macdonald (our Co-ordinator) received their awards in a celebration event held at the newly opened arts venue, HOME in Manchester, a charity supported by Garfield Weston Foundation.
Both Rosemary and Fiona enjoyed the event and are looking forwarded to working with Pilotlight for the next 12 months to make the Gateway into the Community even more sustainable and help us to develop new projects.
