Awards season is upon us and on Saturday evening, Yellow Sub pulled out all the stops with plenty of glitz and glamour at their ceremony ‘The Yellow Submarine Cafe Awards’.
Locale’s Senior Project Manager, Toni Delli-Compagni, had the honour of attending this evening on behalf of Locale.
Toni also presented two awards at the ceremony. She said: “It was great to be at the awards. Our offices are above the cafe in Oxford so at least one of us is in there for a coffee or a sandwich every day.
“We really get to know those who work there and we’ve struck up a firm friendship with the charity so it was lovely to be invited and represent Locale.”
The award-winning charity aims to improve the lives of young adults with learning disabilities in and around Oxfordshire. They work to put youngsters into work placements and train them through their social enterprise projects and are the only charity in the UK to do an Apprenticeship programme for those with learning disabilities. The charity also has a café in Oxford and offers recycling pick-ups for local businesses.
Locale has a close relationship with Yellow Sub, as well as helping out at Monday Night Club, several members of our team have run 5k’s in their name – even winning the charity new uniforms. Toni herself has also competed in an endurance race with Project Manager, Daisy, raising over £400.
Thanks Yellow Sub! We look forward to The Yellow Submarine Cafe Awards 2017!
