We are Beams scoops Top Award
We are Beams was voted “Best children’s Charity” at the recent Kent Charity Awards hosted at the Priestfield Stadium in Gillingham.
The competition was high for many other very worthy charities but the judges said they were bowled over with the passion, enthusiasm and commitment our staff showed when caring for disabled children and families in Kent.
Katrina Adams, Operations Director said” I am so very proud that we have been given this award. It is a fantastic achievement for the entire staff team who are the people that make it all possible. We are fortunate to have staff that is so committed to their work and care passionately about Disabled children and their families. Feeling proud is an understatement”
The comes at the end of a very eventful financial year where the original charity established for over 20 years ago by parents of disabled children, changed the name to We are Beams to help lift the profile of the charity to help secure future finances, and to reach out to more families than ever before.
