We're delighted to announce that the unique partnership between Gloucestershire Gateway Trust and Westmorland has been shortlisted in the Third Sector Charity Awards 2019. In recognition of the success Gloucester Services on the M5, the partnership is shortlisted alongside some well-known competition, a huge achievement as over 300 entries were submitted to the awards this year.
Amid its success, Gloucester Services has exceeded its charitable goals and created over 400 jobs, employed over 80 people specifically from ‘target’ local communities, and supported over 130 local producers within 30 miles. In the last 18 months over £700,000 has been reinvested into community projects and development activity in the target communities to support regeneration. Local residents help decide how future funding is spent through Gloucestershire Gateway Trust’s annual Community Survey and an additional £2.5 million will be committed to these communities over the next five years.
The results will be announced at the Third Sector Awards on 19 September 2019.
