As well as receiving a trophy in recognition of their work, Moat House Community Trust has also been awarded £1,000 to invest in their community
Yewande Kannike, CEO of One Community Development Trust said:
“All the years I’ve been coming to locality, I would listen to other people winning the awards and think – could it ever be us? A small, locally based organisation? Today it’s our turn. We’re delighted. It’s going to increase morale among our staff, our volunteers and mean a lot to Tilbury. It will be such a wonderful thing for the local people, for me to come back and say we won”.
Tony Armstrong, Chief Executive of Locality said:
“Congratulations to One Community Development Trust for winning the Transforming Lives Award. At Locality, we passionately believe in the power of community to transform lives and create a fairer world. Local community organisations like One Community are the very embodiment of this vision. These organisations have shown incredible leadership, energy, and creativity, stepping up in what have been extraordinarily challenging times.”
One Community Development Trust was joined by 4 other award winners, each making an incredible difference to the lives of people in their communities across England.
