Celebrating success at the Michael Rosen Awards 2016

What a night it was at the Michael Rosen Awards on Thursday 24th November 2016! Celebrating the success and commitment of our staff and volunteers is important to us, without each and every one of whom we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Each year the nominations have got bigger and better and this year was no different. The evening kicked off with a wonderful performance from our 3 Certitude choirs who set the tone with a mix of popular classics and even some Christmas jingles to get us into the festive spirit! Food from around the globe was served and everyone enjoyed mixing and chatting with people from across the organisation, people supported by Certitude, their families and many others. It certainly was a lively group!

On to the awards themselves…

As always it was very difficult to pick the winners and with nearly 70 nominations there were some very difficult decisions to be made.
