THE HUDDLESTON CENTRE WINS SANTANDER GROWTH AWARD

We are pleased to announce that we have received a Santander award of £5,000 to fund refurbishment of our Computer Room!

We will be using the award to help develop this space so that it can be utilised as an asset to Centre programs, expanding the number of children and young people we help in Hackney.

We have been named as one of the winners of Santander’s Social Enterprise Development Awards (SEDA) which supports social enterprises and trading charities looking to grow their business and improve their local community. The annual award scheme has awarded 101 social ventures across the UK this year with funding of almost £1million.

Steve Pateman, Head of UK Banking at Santander, said: “SEDA was set up to help social ventures with the potential to grow and we’re delighted to be able to support  The Huddleston Centre and the valuable work they do in their community. Our congratulations go to them and all the 2015 winners.”

Alongside the prize money, we will have access to a business support package from Santander which includes business webinars, funded internships and networking events to meet with other social entrepreneurs in the region.
