WomenCentre have won the Charity of the Year award at the Halifax Courier Community Spirit Award
This is awarded by the judges to the organisation they believe has “consistently delivered outstanding service to its beneficiaries, sustained or raised its profile, operated clearly in its policies and strategies and demonstrated excellence all round.”
A few words from Angela Everson, WomenCentre CEO………….
“Firstly a very big thank you to everyone for voting for WomenCentre.
We are one of the largest Women Centres in the country supporting women & children across Calderdale and Kirklees through our holistic approach.
We are also involved at a regional and national level influencing policy and practice on issues that impact on the lives of the women and the children we support.
We have come a long way since we opened our doors in 1985 and Freda Davis our chair who is with you tonight was one of the Women Centre’s founder members. She has supported our work for over 30 years and is truly an inspirational woman.
I would also like to thank all our staff, volunteers and board members for their continued hard work and commitment to WomenCentre.
Most importantly I want to thank the women who have continued to access the services we offer and who speak so positively about the support they have received. Their bravery and courage in coming forward for help cannot be underestimated.
As we move into our 30th year in 2015 I remain, as the CEO, extremely proud to be involved with such a fantastic organisation and everyone associated with it.
Thank you all once again.”
