In June 2021, we were notified that we were one of twenty charities in the UK to win a Weston Charity Award. This meant that we received an unrestricted grant of £6,500 and ten months support with our business and strategic planning via a small team of Pilotlighters.

We have since completed the programme and on Monday 3rd October our CEO & Chairperson were invited to the Weston Charity Awards - Celebration Event at Fortnum and Mason in London.

They were treated to an afternoon tea and got to meet people from the Garfield Weston Foundation, Pilotlight and other award winning charities. The guest speaker was Donna Fraser OBE, British 400m Olympic athlete and she gave an inspirational talk on resilience and determination.

It was also announced at this event that our charity will receive a bonus £5,000 unrestricted grant, recognising our hard work and commitment to the programme and recognising the increased costs which we are all facing.

We would like to thank all involved in the Weston Charity Awards for their support.
