Annual Awards Ceremony
In July each year the Board of Trustees holds a ceremony to congratulate the winners of that year’s grants. Grant recipients take part in a ‘market stall’ to share their work with others, and speak briefly about how they will use the Grant. A couple of previous Grant recipients also speak about the impact of their completed projects. Each year the Trustees invite a guest speaker. In 2019 they welcomed Damien Egan, the Mayor of Lewisham; in 2018 Asad Ahmad, BBC news presenter and local resident; in 2017 Vicki Foxcroft MP; in 2016 Sir Keith Ajegbo OBE; in 2015 Sir Steve Bullock, Mayor of Lewisham; and in 2014 Baroness Estelle Morris. The event is attended by local voluntary organisations, representatives from Lewisham Council and other key stakeholders from the area.
