On Wednesday 19 September, staff, service users, carers and volunteers gathered at Islington Assembly Hall, to celebrate the great achievements of the last year across the Trust.
C&I's Community Choir welcomed guests to the spectacular venue with renditions of Something Inside So Strong, Lean on Me and Nanuma, a traditional Ghanaian lullaby. The Silencerz, a ska/reggae band, also performed, encouraging guests to stand up and dance, to celebrate the evening in style.
A huge well done to all of our winners and finalists. It's great that this opportunity has been taken again to celebrate all your hard work and commitment.
Thank you to everyone who joined the celebrations. We look forward to doing it all again next year!
