Wards Launches Their 19th Annual Children Awards
Kent’s Local Estate Agent Opens Nominations for Annual Children’s Awards
This October, Wards are once again reuniting with KMFM and the Kent Community Foundation to celebrate and recognise some incredible achievements by Kent’s most courageous young people and those who have supported them.
Wards, part of Arun Estates, the Southeast’s largest independent estate agents, have been giving back and celebrating young people and their families achievements for 19 years. Over the years, they have supported the local Kent community through a multitude of fundraising efforts, annual donations through The Paul Rooney Foundation and through the efforts of their amazing staff.
This year alone, through the Paul Rooney Foundation, Wards have donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to Kent Community Foundation, helping charities and foundations like ellenor’s, the Tree of Hope, The Children’s Trust and local people in need with independent cases.
Hosted once again by Good Morning Britain presenter, Charlotte Hawkins, The Wards Children Awards are celebrating their local community whilst also raising awareness and supporting the education of children affected by disability.
“Our annual Children’s Awards is a really important part of our calendar of events which is linked very closely to the company’s charitable endeavours. These awards are particularly focused on children, their families and those individuals that help and support some of the most vulnerable within our community.” Aldo Sotgiu, Group Managing Director
