Slough Voluntary Sector Awards Evening — The results!
Eagerly awaited Winners were announced at the glamorous 2018 Voluntary Sector Awards Evening on Friday 16th November at the Heathrow /Windsor Marriott Hotel. Over 200 guests enjoyed a celebration of volunteering, designed to recognise and thank those who give so much time and commitment to help their community.
Volunteers, members of charities and community groups and business sponsors were wined and dined in style, during an evening of fun and entertainment, which started with a champagne and chocolate fountain reception and ended with dancing into the early hours.
The evening was compered by Lisa Cunningham and Ramesh Kukar of Slough CVS, with guests of honour The Mayor of Slough, Paul Sohal and Tan Dhesi, MP for Slough. Awards were presented by representatives of Slough Borough Council, Trustees at Slough Council for Voluntary Service, the Clinical Lead for Slough CCG and the Rotary Club of Slough. The winning Charities of the Year received a £1,000 prize, donated by the Rotary Club of Slough and Slough CVS.
Many lucky guests also found themselves winners of raffle prizes, kindly donated by sponsors and local businesses, including an Amazon Fire Tablet, Royal Windsor Racecourse Enclosure tickets, Afternoon Tea for Two at Stoke Park Country Club and The Curve Pantomime tickets. The event was sponsored by Mars Wrigley Confectionery and Redwood Technologies.
