REACH Awards 2022

12 Awards, great video tributes featuring our staff, service users and partners, recognition of retirees. And an emotional climax as none other than Robbie Williams delivered a heartfelt message to our amazing staff before a stunning, tear-jerking version of his hit ‘Angels’ delivered in conjunction with the dDeaflinks choir.
