Craig Bowden Activity Hub manager at CEDA said: “so much has changed in the past 30 years CEDA has been around, we hope to celebrate the advancements and positive change in the way disabled people are viewed in society and what better way to do that than with the 150+ CEDA members who attend our services”
Guy French, Corporate and Customer Strategy Director at OneFamily, said: “The OneFamily Community Awards go right to the heart of what being part of a customer-owned business is all about, directly benefitting our customers and the causes closest to their hearts.
“Each year we give hundreds of thousands of pounds to fund projects, making a real difference to the good causes and those that benefit from them. A fantastic range of entries have been nominated this year and all of them are projects that our customers care passionately about. Anyone can vote and those that get the most will win, so I’d encourage everyone in Exeter and the surrounding area to get involved.”
