MO TUTTY, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at ellenor, was named as Trustee of the Year at the Kent Charity Awards.
Mo, who has been a trustee at the charity for seven years, said: “I was very surprised but felt incredibly proud to be recognised in this way.
“I think this award is recognition of the fantastic work we all do and should be shared with everyone at ellenor.”
During his acceptance speech, Mo paid tribute to the care his own father received from ellenor 20 years ago.
“I will be eternally grateful for the care, dignity and consideration afforded to him and the rest of the family during his final few days,” he said.
The judges noted that, in addition to his role as Trustee, Mo also supports ellenor in a practical way. Last year, he took part in five challenging days of hiking in Iceland to raise money for the charity.
“We are very proud that Mo has been named Trustee of the Year – it’s an accolade which is very well deserved,” says Claire Cardy, ellenor’s Chief Executive.
“He works tirelessly in his role heading up our board of trustees and is endlessly supportive of the work we do as a charity.”
ellenor offers care and support to families and people of all ages who are facing terminal illness in Kent and south-east London.
