Community Awards

Six EAST Trustees and their partners attended the 2015 Suffolk Coastal Business and Community Awards ceremony at Kesgrave Hall on Thursday March 12th .
This year’s event included a new Award, added to the programme by Suffolk Coastal District Council (SCDC), honouring one of the organisations which had received an Enabling Communities grant over the past year. Members of the public were asked to vote during February 2015 when EAST received a substantial number of votes over the other short listed organisations.
EAST Chairman, Geoff Dreher said “ I want to thank everybody who voted for our Charity and trust that the resulting publicity will bring even more volunteers and Suffolk people with Disabilities sailing with EAST on the River Orwell”
In addition to a framed certificate marking the award EAST received a cheque for £500 from Councillor Tina Haworth-Culf, the Cabinet Member for Customer, Community and Leisure at SCDC..
