KM Charity Team Partnership Awards 2017 were held at Rowhill Grange Hotel, Wilmington, on 1st March, to recognise the support given to the Charity Team by eighty of their many sponsors and partners to thank them for their backing. Over 50 certificates and awards were handed out by The Chief Executive, Simon Dolby, assisted by Karen Brinkman of KM’s Walk to School.
In opening the event the Lord-Lieutenant said “By bringing private, public and voluntary sectors together you are making extraordinary things happen. In these days of economic uncertainty we all need to strive to deliver projects that are achieving great outcomes for Kent.”
KM Charity Partnership runs a number of events and quizzes to raise funds for a wide variety of projects in the educational field including the “Walking Bus”, Teacher of the Year and a Literacy programme.
Many of the staff of sponsoring firms help with or join in the events to boost the funds raised. At the conclusion of the award ceremony the Lord-Lieutenant said “I hope all those who received awards this afternoon will be proud to show others your achievements in a wide range of disciplines. In many cases you are demonstrating “Best Practice”. Where this is happening you are leading the way not only in Kent but the whole nation”.
“Thank you, keep up the good work, you are doing a great job. Let’s face it success breeds success and you are leaders of the pack. Be proud of it.”
