CDS sponsor the Waltham Forest Love Your Borough Awards 2017
At CDS we take pride in making a difference to the lives of individuals and communities in the UK. We were therefore delighted to sponsor the Love Your Borough Awards for a second year at the London Borough of Waltham Forest.
The awards, held in Walthamstow on Friday 12 May, saw inspirational individuals and organisations praised for helping to make the borough a better place to live and work.
Dedicated volunteers, exciting entrepreneurs, hard-working professionals and caring community groups all came together at the ceremony, where they received well-deserved praise.
Several CDS colleagues attended the event and our Operations Director, Phil Quinlan presented the Arts and Culture Award. CDS are a key sponsor of the awards.
