We are delighted to have been presented with the ‘Not For Profit Organisation’ award at the prestigious Leicester Mercury Business Awards which took place last night (12th April).
The awards recognise the achievements of the leading local businesses and it is wonderful that the awards also highlight the achievements of charities and organisations working to improve our local communities.
We were shortlisted alongside two other fantastic local organisations – Soft Touch Arts and Leicestershire Cares – so very tough competition! To have our unique work – linking with many fantastic local organisations to help local people in need – recognised in this way is great news. We hope that going forward the award will encourage others to find out about and support our work, for the benefit of the thousands of local people living in hardship and crisis.
Susan McEniff, Director at Charity Link, says: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the small but dedicated team at Charity Link for their tireless hard work, enthusiasm and passion. I would also like to say a massive thank you to our supporters, without which we would not be able to make such a difference to the lives of the most vulnerable local people”.
