Charity of the Year announced for 2019 Test Valley Business Awards

Business Awards’ charity of choice revealed for 15th annual celebration…

As the judges make their all-important decisions in this year’s Test Valley Business Awards, whittling over 200 entries across 6 categories down to a shortlist of just 18 finalists, the Awards has revealed it’s Charity of the Year for 2019 – Jane Scarth House.

Jane Scarth House is a Cancer Support Centre, based in Romsey, but supporting people from all over the Test Valley area and beyond.

Offering a very special place of calm to anyone affected by cancer, both the patient and their families, their services are free of charge and include befriending and information, counselling, meditation and a range of complementary therapies. In addition, Jane Scarth House also offers the Macmillan HOPE course for those who have completed their treatment.

This year,  the charity is introducing ‘The Loft’, an exciting new space to inspire people to connect, find support, learn new skills and even become creative.

Sarah Rowcliffe, Charity Ambassador for Jane Scarth House, commented:

“Everyone at Jane Scarth House is delighted that we have been chosen as the TVBA charity of the year and we are very grateful for their recognition.

“This will make such a difference to us and will help us to continue to provide the support which is so desperately needed within this area.”

Jane Scarth House will be supported during the Test Valley Business Awards’ 2019 Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony, held at the new-look Army Flying Museum on 12th September, where this year’s winners will be announced.

Now in its 15th year, the Test Valley Business Awards – run by a steering group of volunteers – has become a well-established platform to champion business excellence. It is a great way of shining a light particularly on the many new and small businesses in the region, all doing interesting and valuable work, but often out of sight.
