19 CHARITIES WIN GRANT AND STRATEGIC PLANNING SUPPORT FROM WESTON CHARITY AWARDS
12 June 2020
A group of 19 frontline charities from the North of England, the Midlands and Wales have been announced as winners of the 2020 Weston Charity Awards, which received a record number of entries in its seventh year.
The charities, who submitted their entries in January to the Garfield Weston Foundation and leadership charity Pilotlight, will receive a core grant of £6,500 on top of a year of tailored strategic planning support from a dedicated team of four senior business and charity leaders.
Between them the winners provide services to 62,777 people and range in size from £100,000 to nearly £2 million annual income. The people they support cope with a range of issues such as domestic abuse, caring responsibilities and the risks of working in the sex industry.
