So proud and delighted to be informed that the team has won for the following Biz4Biz awards.

  1. Small Business of the year award 

Julie and Pete attended the awards ceremony and were delighted to accept this award on behalf of the team.  A fantastic achievement – being acknowledged not just as a charity, but as a small business is amazing. It’s great that the work we do supporting families and going the Xtra mile to help and support the Children & Young People that we work with has been recognised. 

Winner – 2021 – Children and Young People’s charity of the year

Charity of the Year East Award – CYP Now 2021

This fabulous award shows the incredible dedication and commitment of the CHEXS team to local families and young people during an incredibly difficult time with COVID.

Deliveries of food, laptops, school work and so much more were delivered to children and young people in our community.

It was great to watch these awards on the lead up to our AGM meeting which was scheduled for the same day.
