Shropshire RCC awarded support and funding to invest in future
12th Jun, 2020
Shropshire RCC has had the importance of its current services and future ambitions recognised with its selection as a 2020 Weston Charity Awards winner.
The award gives the charity the chance to invest in its future with a core grant of £6,500 from the Garfield Weston Foundation and a year’s strategic planning support from a team of four business leaders, thanks to the leadership charity Pilotlight.
We were chosen from a record field of nearly 200 applicants, all of whom are frontline charities delivering youth, welfare or community services in the North of England, the Midlands and Wales.
In congratulating Shropshire RCC, Philippa Charles, director of the Garfield Weston Foundation said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the most vulnerable in our communities hard. Frontline charities such as Shropshire RCC are addressing increasing demands for their services with innovation, professionalism and determination; and they are doing so despite serious threats to their finances and operating models.
“The support and experience of the Weston Charity Awards puts charities in a really strong position to survive, adapt and thrive into the future.”
Pilotlight is a charity which will connect Shropshire RCC with a team of coaches drawn from a range of businesses and other organisations.
Bruce McCombie, interim chief executive of Pilotlight, said: “Shropshire RCC has been selected as a Weston Charity Award recipient on the strength of its ambitions and the openness of the leadership team to external perspectives - attributes that will help them benefit most from working with our Pilotlighters.”
