Sister company Redwood Technologies was proud to sponsor the Slough Voluntary Sector Awards, which took place on Friday 16th November in Windsor. The Awards, held annually, provide recognition for the achievements of those working within local voluntary and community groups in Slough.
The evening's comperes were Ramesh Kukar, CEO of Slough CVS, and Lisa Cunningham, a Slough CVS trustee, who have watched the Awards go from strength to strength since they started in 2012. The Awards were presented by Tan Dhesi, MP for Slough, and the evening featured speeches from the Mayor of Slough, Councillor Paul Sohal and Josie Wragg, CEO of Slough Borough Council.
As part of its ongoing support for the Awards, Redwood Technologies sponsored the Business Support of the Year category. This Award shines a spotlight on individuals or teams who have made an outstanding contribution to the Slough community through business mentoring, philanthropic contributions or volunteering business support.
The winner of the Business Support of the Year Award was Landid and Brockton Capital for its work on the Porter Building, allowing local community and voluntary groups in Slough to use their facilities free of charge. This has allowed local groups to run training sessions, hold regular board meetings and hold events to promote different causes. You can hear their full story here.
