EVA Charities

The following charities have been chosen from finalists and we have raised funds for them and also awareness at the awards ceremony. We feel by choosing a charity from those that have entered and been successful then we are giving something back directly to a worthy charity within our region. We are proud to work with these charities and although we can only chose one per year we hope that our awards platform is able to make a difference.

We are inspired and want to help champion these amazing charities. Please take a moment to read their information or visit their websites.
