Basingstoke based Hartford Care is thrilled to be the proud winner of the Best Fundraising Event at the inaugural Care Workers Charity awards.
Hartford Care were recognised as the winners in the Best Fundraising Event category thanks to the abseil challenge at the Emirates Spinnaker Tower, that involved 6 people from the business. The senior management team at the Care Home group also embarked on a five-day trek across the remote highlands of Iceland. Additional fundraising events and activities have been organised by the group of 14 Care Homes in the south.
The winners were invited to celebrate their achievements at a traditional afternoon tea function held at The Ned, in Central London on Friday 18th January 2019.
The event was hosted by Richard Muncaster, CEO of The Care Workers Charity, Head of Partnerships Alex Ramamurthy and Ben Allen, the Chairman of CWC and CEO of Oomph Wellness.
The Awards were introduced to acknowledge and reward the exceptional contributions of some of its most dedicated supporters; people whose help might otherwise go unrecognised.
An internal panel of judges recognised the most noteworthy efforts from a long list of charity’s supporters, selecting twelve outstanding individuals and CWC Partners in seven categories.
The Care Workers Charity supports anyone who has worked in the care sector who are experiencing financial hardship and need guidance, support or monetary grants.
Hartford Care has been delighted to contribute to supporting nearly 2 million people working in the care industry, (regardless of role) who may have fallen on hard times, raising over £13,900for the charity so far, since March 2017.
CEO Sean Gavin and Brand Director Jo Gavin were in attendance to accept the award and express their gratitude for the recognition.
Sean said: it feels great to know that our fundraising efforts have been recognised by the charity. We recognise and value the dedication and commitment by all our staff and felt that this charity would be a way to shine a light on this as well supporting anyone who may run into hardship. We look forward to sharing and celebrating this great news with staff, residents, relatives and family carers.
Richard Muncaster is the CEO of The Care Workers Charity: “I warmly congratulate all of the winners. Your dedication and commitment in helping CWC grow and be heard doesn’t just produce fantastic results, it changes lives”.
