We were exceptionally honoured to have been invited to join with other guests at the High Sheriff of the West Midlands Awards Dinner, in St Martins Church in the city centre. This prestigious occasion was to mark the individuals and organisations who have been inspirational over the last 12 months and beyond, across the whole of the West Midlands. Unexpectedly, free@last was included in the awards in recognition of great and valuable services to the community of Nechells. We are exceptionally proud and humbled by this award and will continue to live and work to the standards that have been awarded here. Our thanks go to Chris Loughran, the High Sheriff, for his support and recognition of our work, thank you.
