We make people happier - it's official!
Recently, we were finally able to collect an award we're so pleased about, because it's for 'making people happier'. What better compliment is there?! And the icing on the cake is the fact that young people from within our community were among the judges.
The 'Making People Happier Group Award' was one of 10 accolades given to individuals and organisations as part of the East Middlesbrough Covid Community Champions Awards scheme 2021, by Active Tees Valley and Youth Focus North East.
The other categories were: the Improving Communities Award (for an individual and a group), Volunteer of the Year (separate awards for an adult and a young person), Citizen of the Year (also for an adult and a young person), Local East Middlesbrough Business of the Year, and the Covid Hero Award.
Congratulations to everyone nominated in this special scheme, and to all the other winners. This certificate and a striking glass trophy are now taking pride of place at our Kids Kabin Middlesbrough HQ on Laurel Avenue.
Thank you to our nominees, judges, and of course our staff, volunteers, members and their families, as without you all, our work wouldn't be possible.
