2016 Sustainable City Awards

In March 2016 we were awarded the Building Sustainable Communities Award at the City of London's Sustainable City Awards. It is awarded to voluntary organisations whose work makes a tangible difference to the sustainability of their local area by bringing people together, especially across different communities. We are delighted by this recognition of the hard work of our outgoing centre manager Chris, and that of all of the staff and volunteers of our Stones End Day Centre.
