Our 2018 Community Awards winners met at Pure Innovation’s ‘The Kitchen’ for a coffee and catch up to discuss what they had used their funding for and share their plans for 2019.

The Vernon Community Awards have awarded over £70,000 to charities and organisations across the area since 2012.

AuKids Debby Elley said: ‘Some companies hand out grants and walk away happy enough that they’ve done their ‘bit’ for the community. Not Vernon Building Society, who arranged this coffee morning just to find out how we are getting on. They also extend different types of business expertise to the charitable organisations they support. It really isn’t just lip service with them, they genuinely care.’
 
Our Marketing Manager Alex Deakin said: ‘The coffee morning was a fantastic chance to catch up with our 2018 finalists and find out how they put the funding to good use. Not only do the Awards give funding to local charities but they also provide great networking opportunities’.
