Wards Estate Agents Celebrates 20th Year of Children’s Awards
Local Community High-Street Estate Agent, Wards, launch their 20th year of the Wards Children’s Awards
This September, Wards are once again reuniting with KM and the Kent Community Foundation to celebrate and honour some incredible children, young people, families and charities that face adversity across Kent with an afternoon of recognition and fun.
In 2023, Wards Estate Agents, founded by Paul Rooney, are celebrating their 20th anniversary of the awards. First beginning in 2003, the awards share stories of brave children who overcome so much, families who defy expectations and charities who support so many in the community.
With six awards open for nominations, Wards, KM and Kent Community Foundation are currently looking for young people, families and charities that have achieved extraordinary things in the face of adversity.
