For those of you who don’t already know CHICS won the Community Award at the above awards night, on Thursday 9th September 2010. The award was presented at the Isla Gladstone Conservatory in Liverpool and it was a fantastic night with many moving and inspirational stories from many walks of life. The award was the recognition that I think we would all agree CHICS really deserves for the fantastic work it does for all its members.

CHICS were nominated by Gill Freeman (there were 106 nominations in our category) and it was lovely that Gill, Paul, Rebecca and Thomas could join us on the night. Thank you Gill.
