For this year’s Vernon Building Society Community Awards, there were 66 applicant organisations. We were delighted to be selected as one of 14 finalists.
There was an online public vote, to determine the share of the £10,000 pot finalists would receive based on our finishing positions.
Thanks so much to everyone who voted for us or helped spread the word. We came 9th, meaning an award of £450, which we will be putting towards our Volunteer network. Volunteers play a vital role at Stockport Mind and we couldn’t manage without them. We have a team of over 25 active Volunteers and there is always a need for resources to maintain their work and engage the team.
Thank you very much to the Vernon for choosing us as a finalist and giving us the opportunity, to all who helped us in the competition, and a huge well done to all of our fellow finalist organisations for their awards, which will put towards lots of vital work and projects across Stockport.
