Matson, Robinswood and White City Community Partnership Awards Ceremony

Community sits at the heart of Gloucester Services. Indeed, the idea of Gloucester Services was first put to the Dunning family by Gloucestershire man Mark Gale as a means of creating local jobs and providing sustainable income and other benefits to help local communities thrive in the future. A partnership of business and community between the Westmorland Family and the Gloucestershire Gateway Trust was formed to bring the Gloucester Services project to life with the Trust becoming a registered charity in 2011.

Some of those communities local to Gloucester Services recently held the first Matson, Robinswood and White City Community Partnership Awards ceremony with over 100 residents and community figures who gathered to celebrate the unsung heroes of the local community, who continuously work hard to improve the lives and areas of those around them.

Sponsors of the awards included GL Communities, Gloucester City Homes and PCC, as well as our community partner Gloucestershire Gateway Trust, who were the main sponsor of the event. Ten different accolades were up for grabs to recognise and congratulate the people living or working in the Matson or Robinswood ward and the amazing work that they are doing in their neighbourhood.

Dawn Adams, secretary of the Community Partnership and organiser of the Community Awards Ceremony said “The idea behind creating the awards gave us the chance to recognise the many people and organisations that do amazing work in our communities – those who are visible but also those that go unseen. What’s more it’s a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of our neighbourhoods in a really positive way.”

Mark Gale, Chief Executive of Gloucestershire Gateway Trust and a member of the Community Partnership added, “I feel really honoured that the Trust has supported this awards ceremony and helped celebrate all the great people and acts of kindness that go on in these communities.”
