OCEAN STARS TRUST UK ARE RUNNERS-UP AT CHARITY GOVERNANCE AWARDS 2023
Ocean Stars Trust is delighted to announce that they were Runners-Up at this year’s Charity Governance Awards in the Category Improving Impact in Small Charities (0-3 Paid Staff) .
Dan Corry, CEO of NPC explained, “This category explores the role that boards play in improving outcomes, and learning. The category focuses on smaller organizations. Small charities are at the heart of communities, tackling inequalities and supporting change. Change is a constant for these organizations, and we want to celebrate the way their boards help them to learn and adapt and so improve their impact.”
Deepak Nambisan, Chair of the awards steering committee, said, “Many congratulations to our inspirational winners and everyone who made it onto the shortlist. It’s heartening to see that ingenuity, commitment and passion are thriving in the sector, often within challenging circumstances. This year, we’ve been struck by the impressive showing from the country’s smallest charities – more than half of all nominees are charities with fewer than 30 employees. This is a shining example of how trustees with foresight, imagination and an authentic connection to their beneficiaries can overcome barriers and achieve great things.”
The Award Ceremony was held at Drapers Hall in London and was attended by OST Chair John Bunter, Trustee Cameron Williams and Head of Operations Dilanee Bunter. The Team enjoyed meeting representatives from other award winners and nominees from other Charities and networking.
As Runners up OST also gained a Prize of £1000 as well as a paid one-year membership of the Association of Chairs for their board, and a complementary place on a Cause4 Trustee Leadership Programme for a new member of their board. We are delighted that the work of the Trustee Board has been validated and recognized in this way. A very special day for all of us at Ocean Stars Trust.
The Awards were organized by the Clothworkers Company and sponsored by the following organizations.
