KF Celebrating the successes of 2019
2019 was a big year for the Kent Foundation, new services have been launched, and the number of businesses who accessed support through our mentoring program nearly doubled to 160 businesses. We are very proud of the achievements we have made, but more importantly, we are proud to be a part of the achievements made by young entrepreneurs and business owners in Kent. This is why we want to publicly celebrate with them, and recognise their achievements.
Young Entrepreneurs and business owners, Mentors, Trustees and the staff team gathered for our annual Kent Foundation Awards hosted by Ann Allen MBE, Chairman of Kent County Council at County Hall on 22 January. We were overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of nominations this year and delighted to make awards to such worthy winners. The room was buzzing with conversation before and after the awards ceremony and we managed to only overrun by nearly an hour!
It was a pleasure for everyone there to see the recognition given to both Kent Foundation Members and Volunteers. So much has been achieved in 2019 by the businesses that were nominated, and, through the support and appreciation of their Kent Foundation Business Mentors.
Finally, a big thank you to Kent County Council, and in particular Cllr. Ann Allen MBE for hosting this event. It has become a highlight in our calendar, and it would not be possible without your support.
