The Charity Awards 2017


Dick Jenkins, Chief Executive of the Socety said:
“The Awards are very important to us and are a way for the Society to “give something back” to the local community. It is amazing the work some of these organisations do and the local people that they help and on such little funding, I’m just glad we can help! 

I am really pleased how the number of applications continues to increase year on year and this year is no different! I’d like to thank the Judges for spending their time to help judge the Awards; they were the Mayor of Bath (Councillor Ian Gilchrist), Alan Keeling from The Rotary Club Bath, Claire Wynne-Hughes from The Quartet Community Foundation and my colleagues Kevin Gray and Tiffany Hardie-Albutt.  It was a tough competition but we found our winners in the end!”
