With a hint of Halloween our Annual Awards ceremony was held at the end of last month at Centrepoint’s Dean Street Cafe. Hosted by Tom Watt, guest enjoyed a humorous evening with delicious food presented by the trainees at the cafe.
This year the awards were donated and presented by our Employers and Partners who personally acknowledged the achievements of 14 individuals who had excelled with them. But the event was not just an intimate celebration for the award winners. It was also an opportunity to thank and celebrate our very valued employers and supporters – the very people that provide the essential ingredient for changing perception, spreading the word and helping others to see the talent pool that exists so that we can all help to reduce re-offending and change lives together.
Please take a look at the highlights of the evening in our video:
