Tonic Health were South Holland Business Awards community winners in 2018
Tonic Health, a charity community hub for health and wellbeing based in Spalding, took the Supporting the Community award – recognising organisations contributing to the community in which they operate – in the 2018 South Holland Business Awards.
Chair of trustees, Michael Morris, said the awards are a perfect opportunity to look back and see what they’ve achieved: “We entered the awards on two previous occasions, receiving a highly commended both times, so thought this would be third time lucky!
“Entering awards such as the South Holland Business Awards provides a perfect platform to look back over what we have delivered and how this has helped the community.
“As a local charity, the awards help to put us in the spotlight and have our name mixing with other leading businesses and organisations in the area.
“The award has given us an extra boost to strive and develop our ideas and thinking so that we can grow, flourish and continue to make a difference to our local community.
“We struggle to get our name out into the public domain – for all the people who know about us, there are a large number that still haven’t heard about us, so any publicity gained just helps that little bit more!”
Judges were impressed by the cutting-edge support Tonic Health gives patients, carers and carers’ families and its strong and effective links with local groups, companies and organisations, leading to a successful funding bid of £108,000.
Michael said: “Winning was testament to the hard work we have put into the running and development of the organisation and a huge reflection we are doing well – all in all we’re very proud.”
