Top care charity announces the winners of its first-ever award nominations

The Care Workers Charity (CWC) has announced the winners of the CWC Awards 2018.

An internal panel of judges recognised the most noteworthy efforts of a long list of the charity’s supporters, selecting twelve outstanding individuals and CWC Partners in seven categories:

  • Best fundraising campaign was awarded to Avery Healthcare’s Angus Matthew. Avery’s summer cocktail parties, held as part of the CWC’s ‘Going the Extra Mile’ fundraising campaign welcomed family, friends and the local community, raising £3,420.81 for the charity.
