CELEBRITY REVEREND RICHARD COLES
TO HOST COLYER FERGUSSON 50TH ANNIVERSARY CHARITY AWARDS
CELEBRATING CHARITIES & COMMUNITY GROUPS WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE IN KENT
The Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust, www.cfct.org.uk, is delighted to announce that celebrity Reverend Richard Coles, cleric, TV & radio broadcaster, Strictly Come Dancing star and former Communard, will host the Trust’s 50th Anniversary Charity Awards at Shakespeare’s Underglobe on London’s South Bank on 7 November 2019.
Reverend Richard Coles will recognise and reward some of Kent’s most outstanding charities working with young people. The Awards will also provide an opportunity for the Trust to thank the organisations that it has funded over the last five years, showing them how much their work is appreciated. It is only through the hard work and dedication of charities in Kent that the funds of the Colyer-Fergusson Trust are making a lasting and positive difference to some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised young people in Kent.
Cleric, broadcaster and former Communard, Reverend Richard Coles:
“I am delighted to have been asked to host the Colyer-Fergusson 50th Anniversary Charity Awards. The awards will pay tribute to charities and churches that have worked to improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in Kent. The evening will be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate fifty years of philanthropy and remember Sir James Colyer-Fergusson, a modest man who cared so very deeply about the churches and communities of Kent.”
Chief Executive, Jacqueline Rae:
“We are honoured that Reverend Richard Coles has agreed to host our 50th Anniversary Charity Awards. This is a very special year for us as we celebrate the philanthropy of the Trust’s founder, Sir James Colyer-Fergusson. Sir James was passionate about music, churches and charity and I am sure that he would be delighted that Reverend Coles is helping us to mark this milestone year.”
