On 4 December 2020 the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action (NAVCA) held its annual Heart of the Community Awards. We are delighted to announce that Hunts Forum won in the Liaison Award category for its Recognised Organisation project, which brought community organisations together from across Huntingdonshire to support people in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Find out more about our Recognised Organisations here.
All of us at Hunts Forum would like to say a massive well done to our Deputy CEO, Kathryn Shepherdson, who had the unenvious task of starting in her post just as the pandemic hit. Kathryn was instrumental in setting up and leading the Recognised Organisations project, making a huge positive impact to the work of Hunts Forum and the wider voluntary sector in this most challenging of years.
Kathryn was also Highly Commended in NAVCA’s Rising Star Leadership Award for demonstrating exceptional leadership in the past year.
