At a glittering event in Bath’s Assembly Rooms Tim Rutherford, Head of Stone King’s Charity and Social Enterprise Sector Group, was delighted to present Mentoring Plus with a well-deserved Bath Life Charity Award.
The charity supports young and vulnerable people aged between seven and 21 across Bath and North East Somerset, employing professional case workers and carefully linking each mentee with a volunteer mentor. Mentors receive training, supervision and support from the charity all the way.
The award judges said the organisation is ‘highly thoughtful, demonstrating excellence in the vital work that they do with our young and most vulnerable’ and that the charity is also ‘incredibly active within the community’.
The accolade was gratefully accepted in front of an audience of 500 by Mentoring Plus Director Jamie Luck and Stephanie Massie, responsible for the charity’s Community Development.
Tim Rutherford said: “The judges had a difficult choice from such a strong list of category finalists, however Mentoring Plus is a very worthy and deserving winner. The charity plays an invaluable role in the community and it is an honour to have presented them with this award.”
On the awards night, on 22 March, Mentoring Plus was chosen by judges from among seven other charity finalists, including Bath City Farm, Children’s Hospice South West, Designability, Developing Health & Independence, People Against Poverty, St. John’s Foundation and YMCA Bath Group.
The Charity award was one of 23 categories at the Bath Life Awards that celebrated the city’s outstanding organisations and individuals. A full list of winners can be found at bathlifeawards.co.uk/winners
