In September, the Community Foundation for Calderdale hosted the Community Spirit Awards celebrating the work of volunteers, charities and community groups. CEO of the Community Foundation Steve Duncan explained, “We help local people do extraordinary things together. We fund and support a huge range of activities that help young people, older people and disabled people, as well as homelessness, sports, environmental, education, and mental health projects, plus everything in between.
We work with our local communities to inspire and encourage projects that they want to see, to make their neighbourhoods happier, healthier and safer places to be.” HOT were delighted to win the Charity of the Year Award which is sponsored by Riley & Co. We have called our award which is in the form of a metal wire sheep ‘Riley’ in homage to our sponsors. Riley The Sheep really is living the life of Riley on his tour of HOT venues. Look out for him visiting you soon! Follow Riley on @instagram @RileyTheSheep.
