Wessex Charity Awards


2010 Awards

The Awards Presentation evening in 2010 really highlighted the popularity of this event and the charities benefiting from it. Winners, finalists and honoured guests attending the Gala Dinner enjoyed watching the heart-warming films about each of the charities which really demonstrated the work that goes on behind the scenes in these organisations.

The Awards evening was sponsored by prominent local companies.

“There was a glow of pride and happiness over the Nursery today. The volunteers had such a wonderful time; it was an occasion they will never forget. I felt so proud of them all, they had all made such an effort to do the project justice. You need to be congratulated on providing such a successful event.”

“Thank you so much. Superb organisation and a really warm, enjoyable occasion and a wonderful chance to learn more about the range of charities working in the Wessex region. Such evenings really highlight the passion and immense dedication of so many local people who work within and volunteer across the charity sector.”
