On 6th October the Third Sector Interface held their Impact Awards at Innes House. Moray Reach Out was very excited and honoured to discover a month ago that we were nominated in four out of the seven categories.

The categories included Environmental Impact, Economic Impact, Community Impact and Social Impact. With so many amazing social enterprises, charities and local businesses in attendance we were very excited to have been recognised with these nominations.

TsiMORAY put on a wonderful event at Innes House (with our own In Stitches providing the table decorations!). It was a fantastic evening with great hosts and speakers!

When the awards were being announced all of the Moray Reach Out attendees were thrilled and surprised when Moray Reach Out was announced as the Community Impact winner!

This award was judged based on the concept of Community Impact as:

‘An organisation making communities safer, stronger, healthier, wealthier or a better place to live. This could include starting or running community initiatives or activities, providing employment, training and/or volunteer opportunities for local people or those furthest from the job market. This category is open to interpretation and acknowledges individuals and organisations who make a difference to local people, improve community morale, the local environment and so much more.’

We want to thank our very passionate staff, volunteers and trainees for making Moray Reach Out such an inclusive place to work and train! We also want to thank the many individuals, local businesses and social enterprises that support us with their custom!

We continually strive to create opportunities that empower lives and hope that we can continue to positively impact the community for many years to come!
