CFF Military Family Charity of the Year Award.

Updated: Sep 29, 2023

I feel so privileged to be part of a team that has been recognised with the

Celebrating Forces Families-Military Family Charity of the Year Award.

We are also very proud that the dedication and commitment of one of our

volunteers, Sharon Deans, was also recognised with the Volunteer of the Year

Award on the evening. – I think this is known as a double whammy!

This week a senior director from a very established charity congratulated

me and asked what our secret was, how were we becoming the charity on

everyone’s radar? I said it’s because we have built a community consisting of

our Members, Volunteers, Staff and Trustees. Our community has a shared

culture of mutual caring, understanding, and a passion for what we do.

It is truly electrifying!

Our Volunteers, Staff and Trustees bring with them a staggering diversity of

skills, knowledge, experience, and expertise. However, our biggest asset is our

amazing Members. Every single day we are blown away by how our Members

genuinely care, support and guide each other through the most difficult

times. Everything we do is guided by them and the example of genuine care

and support they set. I have never known a community like it – people looking

out for each other, checking in on each other when they know someone is

particularly struggling, and just being there for each other.

So, thank you to everyone that helps to make The Ripple Pond such an

incredible community and for your part in securing our award of Military

Family Charity of the Year.

Rodger Cartwright – CEO
