“What an astonishing evening, the winners were so creative and we were blown away by the videos that demonstrated the value and importance of their work. We wanted to mark the 10th Birthday of the FSI by honoring small charities and community groups for the impact they have in communities here in the UK and across the globe and myself and the trustees had the opportunity to spend an evening celebrating their work in the company of some very inspirational small charities”. Emma Harrison CBE, Chairman of the FSI – Awards Ceremony 2017
“When deciding how to celebrate our impact we couldn’t think of anything more relevant than to raise the awareness of the impact of small charities and community groups and so the FSI Small Charity Big Impact Awards were created. At the awards ceremony hosted by the Worshipful Company of Leathersellers the innovation, creativity and most importantly the impact of the work of the Award Winners shone through and we hope that winning the awards is as special to you as it is to the FSI”. Pauline Broomhead CBE, CEO FSI – Awards Ceremony 2017
