Slough Charities putting on the Glitz for Awards Night

As suspense builds among the Nominees in the lead up to Slough Voluntary Sector Awards Night, Slough Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) is delighted to thank local businesses for their generous support without which we would not be able to showcase the amazing work of Slough Voluntary and Community Groups and celebrate our own Charity superstars.
Thanks to lead partner Osborne (one of the UK’s leading construction companies), and other local businesses including Mars Chocolate UK, Redwood Technologies, Rotary Club of Slough, Maakrish and Kehorne, the nominated Volunteers will be treated to a glamorous Oscar style Awards Evening on Friday 17th November at the Heathrow Windsor Marriott.

During an evening of wining, dining and entertainment the coveted Award winners will be revealed for the 5 categories: Business Support of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Group of the Year and SCVS Partnership Award.

Around 200 guests will attend the evening along with The Mayor of Slough, Councillor Ishrat Shah and Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi, MP for Slough.

Jesal Dhokia and Ramesh Kukar of Slough CVS (shown in the photo attached), are looking forward to putting on the glitz and compering this year’s eagerly awaited event for the Voluntary Sector.

Carol Bailey, Managing Director for OPSL at Osborne, said; “We’re delighted to be supporting this important Community event.  We all need help when life gets challenging and most of our employees are from the local communities.  Many of them and their families are likely to be benefitting from support and services given by some of these amazing charities, and we are proud to support them.”

Ramesh Kukar, Chief Officer for Slough CVS, said; “we are so grateful to our Business supporters.  Without them there is no way we could run an event like this to thank all these wonderful local volunteers and charities.  It’s such a pleasure to be able to invite them to an occasion like this and to honour their work for our community.”

Slough CVS is the local charity that supports the voluntary sector in Slough. The Awards have been running since 2012 with the support of local businesses.
