IT was a good night for Dingley’s Promise at the Newbury Weekly News Best in Business Awards.
The charity not only walked away with the Community and Charity award, sponsored by Greenham Trust – but also with a cheque for £3,468.50.
Some of the money was raised through a raffle on the night, with prizes including a boxing glove signed by Sir Henry Cooper, which was donated by NWN chief executive James Gurney.
This total was topped up by Santander, which put in £1,000 and included a generous individual donation from SnappySnaps director Umar Khan (pictured below left with his team in Newbury).
Dingley’s Promise delivers life-changing support to children under the age of five with additional needs and disabilities. The charity celebrated its 20th anniversary this year.
