CCB delighted to take part in Berkshire Community Foundation’s 2019 Showcase event celebrating the work of local groups

Last week (Thursday 16th May) CCB were invited to attend Berkshire Community Foundation’s (BCF) Celebrating Impact: Showcase Event held at Ascot Racecourse.

The Celebrating Impact: Showcase Event took place at Ascot Racecourse, in their stunning On5 Suite. It was hosted by Ady Williams, BBC Radio Berkshire Sports Presenter, on Thursday 16th May at 6.30pm.

Over 80 guests, including Helen Dean and Tim Parry from CCB, were welcomed and treated to a range of delicious canapes. Once seated, guests were welcomed by Ady and Chris Dodson OBE DL, Chair of Trustees at BCF, and shown a video of the highlights BCF have had over the year.

Six groups were selected for the awards, those in particular who have made an impression in the community helping individuals that are in need or disadvantaged. CCB received a grant from Surviving Winter which allowed Project Co-ordinator Helen Dean to help individuals to reduce their energy bills, when they are struggling.

The six groups; Aik Saath, Building for the Future, Mustard Tree, Parents and Children Together, Connecting Communities in Berkshire and Mock Trials were then individually presented with certificates.

Helen said: “I was thrilled that our Family Home Energy Education & Advice project was recognised in this way. It has been a wonderful evening and lovely to hear from the wide range of groups that BCF support. CCB are so grateful to BCF for this recognition and their continued backing.”
