It means so much to our dedicated team, our supporters and the young people we work with every day. We hope that the profile of the awards will enable us to change the lives of more young people.”
Active Fusion Trustee Andrew Singleton said: “As Active Fusion is still less than a year old as an incorporated charity and as this was our first ever appearance at the Doncaster Business Awards, it is an incredible honour and achievement for us to finish runners up.
“An incredible amount of work has been put in by our small but passionate and dynamic team and it’s reassuring to know that we have been recognised for our primary aim, which is quite simply to help the young people of Doncaster to be the best they can be.
“Six other fabulous third sector organisations were shortlisted in our category and The Children’s Sleep Charity were very worthy winners. Our congratulations and best wishes extend to all of the nominees and all of the other amazing third sector organisations within our region.”
