Thanet Community Awards celebrate voluntary contribution

January, 2019

Kent-based PR and marketing agency Maxim got a closer look at the contribution voluntary groups make to society when they were guests at the inaugural Thanet Community Awards.

Thant Community Award programme

Sponsored by Maxim client London Array offshore wind farm in partnership with Westwood Cross shopping centre and local newspaper Thanet Extra, the awards attracted more than 130 nominations. 

The initiative culminated in a celebratory dinner for more than 100 people at the Yarrow Hotel in Broadstairs, where the sponsors presented prize money and certificates.

Maxim negotiated London Array’s involvement with the awards with the Kent Messenger Group’s Charity Team, which organised and publicised them.

Erica Jones, Account Manager at Maxim, said: “Community engagement can be an important part of building an organisation’s local reputation but needs to be done in a way that brings the most value to all involved.

“By being involved at an early stage, and working closely with the other sponsors, we were able to help shape an event that more than delivered on expectations. We were delighted to be present at the awards dinner and to meet some of the organisations that had benefited from our client’s support.”

Jonathan Duffy, General Manager of London Array, added: “London Array has been operating in Ramsgate since 2010 and has a track record of supporting Thanet’s strong and close-knit community. These awards give well-deserved recognition to the many voluntary and community groups that make a real difference in the area.”
