We are the best not-for-profit in the borough - AGAIN!

Seashell Trust staff receiving their award from Jenny Powell at Stockport Business Awards

Seashell Trust has been crowned Best Not-For-Profit Organisation at the Stockport Business Awards for the second time in three years.

The annual ceremony, hosted by TV presenter Jenny Powell, was organised by Clarke Nicklin Chartered Accountants at Stockport Town Hall.

Darren Ashcroft, from category sponsor Ashcroft Creative Design, presented the award to representatives from the charity including director and trustee Julie Besbrode.

Julie Besbrode said: “For Seashell Trust to have received the Best Not-For-Profit award for the second time in three years, is testament to the dedication of the staff at the charity.”

“In the last twelve months Seashell Trust has further extended its work in Stockport and beyond.  More families and their children with complex needs are now benefitting from our expertise than ever before.  From multi-sensory impaired babies and infants in Stockport accessing our innovative Stay and Play scheme, disabled and non-disabled children regularly attending our CADS sports camps, through to parents and caring receiving advice via our Family Services programme.”

“Under the leadership of new CEO, Jolanta McCall, Seashell has a very bright future ahead of it.”

Long-term Seashell supporter Starkey Hearing Technologies was also honoured on the night, winning the Innovation category.
