We’re in celebration mode today…
The winners of the 2010 Morgan Foundation Entrepreneur Awards were revealed last night at a gala awards ceremony held at Carden Park Hotel, Chester. The winner of the Best Entrepreneurial Charity or Social Enterprise in Liverpool category, sponsored Liverpool Vision and with a prize of £10,000, was The Reader Organisation.
What they said:
This charity is dedicated to bringing about a reading revolution. It promotes shared reading as a rehabilitative tool to build community and improve personal mental wellbeing. Beneficiaries include: people suffering deprivation, children in care, young people not in formal education, people with physical or mental health problems and they also work extensively with older people. The charity’s sheer professionalism and innovative way of developing literacy skills united the judges.
Just look at the big, glass, rather heavy looking, trophy waiting to wing its way back to Abercromby Square (whose job will it be to polish that?):
