Charity award achievement
A charity that provides care and support for local adults with learning and physical disabilities has been named runner-up at a regional awards ceremony.
The Rossendale Trust, based in Sutton, picked up the runner-up title in the charity of the year (Rising Star) category at the North West Charity Awards, a glitzy event at The Principal in Manchester.
Sue Heaven, head of PR and fundraising at the trust said: “Runner-up in the whole of the North West of England is such an achievement for us. This award is a fantastic tribute to all of the people who work for the charity, who are providing great care and support to adults with learning disabilities.
“Becoming charity of the year (Rising Star) is a great honour shared by everyone at Rossendale. In a field of 19 other charities we have proved we are a growing charity and one that makes a huge difference in the world of disability.”
Last year, the Rossendale Trust achieved 37th position in The Times 100 best not-for-profit organisations to work for 2019.
