Spirit of Tamworth Awards
Spirit of Tamworth Community Awards
Friday Feb 3rd 2017
Held at Drayton Manor
Community together CIC are very proud to have been selected as one of four finalists in the community group of the year category.
The other finalists were:
Tamworth Wellbeing Cancer Support Centre
Tamworth Rotary Club
We would also like to give a special thanks to the people of Tamworth, for nominating us, & for the tremendous local support from both individuals & businesses without whom, none of our work would be possible.
We were very humbled to be even nominated for the award but to be shortlisted in such distinguished company was a real honour.
As a consequence of our holistic approach, we have the privilege of working alongside numerous community interest groups in the area, & in our opinion anyone of them deserved this nomination.
You are all the glue that make Tamworth a great place and provide invaluable support to the Tamworth Community, without which Tamworth would be a very different place indeed.
Community Together CIC were represented on the evening by two members of our team, Karen Morgan & John Trivett, together with their respective partners.
Karen & John said how much they had enjoyed the evening, & how they had been inspired & moved by their fellow nominees. They both were particularly moved by the incredible courage shown by the younger nominees & winners.
From the winners of the ten categories involved, the audience were invited to chose an overall Champion who demonstrates everything that is good about Tamworth
That hero was Tilly Sweet, who was also voted child of the year.
The category winners in our group were “Tamworth Wellbeing Cancer Support Centre”, & our heartfelt congratulations go out to them. We would also like to congratulate our fellow finalists, “Simon‘s Hero’s” & “Tamworth Rotary Club”.
Finally, on behalf of:
Our Service Users
Our fantastic volunteers
Our board of directors
A massive thank you to everybody involved in organising & carrying out the Spirit of Tamworth Community Awards, & our finalist’s certificate will take pride of place in our hub, & inspire us to greater things.
