Pure Innovations wins at the Charity Awards 2022
Pure Innovations is delighted to announce that it has taken the top prize in the Disability category at this year’s Charity Awards, the longest-running and most prestigious awards scheme in the charity sector.
Pure Innovations was recognised for The Kitchen, its project supporting people with disabilities to run all aspects of a commercial bakery. Products are sold onsite in a restaurant and distributed to cafes across Greater Manchester.
Alongside the nine other category winners, the Overall Winner and the recipient of the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, Pure Innovations was presented with the trophy at a black-tie ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on 16 June, hosted by broadcaster, commentator and writer Ayesha Hazarika.
Matt Nolan, chief executive of Civil Society Media which organises the Charity Awards, congratulated Pure Innovations on winning the highly-coveted award. Matt said:
“The standard of entries this year was as high as ever, despite the challenges that the sector has faced during the pandemic – so Pure Innovations should be very proud to have won their category. Their programme has delivered great results for individuals with disabilities.
“For 22 years the Charity Awards have been recognising and celebrating the fantastic work that large and small charities do up and down the UK every day of the week, and the rigorous judging process ensures that only the very best-run charities win awards.”
Peter Hugh Smith, chief executive at Overall Awards Partner CCLA, said:
“The Charity Awards represent the pinnacle of charitable endeavour and CCLA is delighted to support the Awards and to help promote the fantastic work that the sector is doing across the UK.
“This year’s competition was as stiff as ever and all the category winners deserve enormous credit. Pure Innovations demonstrates beyond any doubt that the charity sector really can change the world. Huge congratulations to their team.”
