Celton Manx recognises good causes

Firm offers practical and financial support

Celton Manx has named 22 local good causes as recipients of its 2016 Recognition awards programme. 

Launched in 2015, the scheme targets what it describes as 'under-the-radar’ charities and not-for-profit organisations with limited resources for promoting and developing their services.

Celton Manx executive director Bill Mummery said: 'Recognition is the core component of our corporate social responsibility programme that aims to lend greater visibility to organisations working hard to transform people’s lives. Given the current economic climate the importance of these third sector organisations working closely with Government has never been greater.'

 

Around 100 applications were received and as well as monetary awards, some organisations received practical or technical support for projects such as creating websites and devising promotional campaigns.

 

The 2016 awards will help charities in areas ranging sport, youth and community schemes to digital literacy, disability groups and hardship funds.

 

Submissions for Recognition 2017 will be invited towards the end of this year.
