Our catch up with 2018 South Holland Business Award winners continues and this week it’s Tonic Health, a charity community hub for health and wellbeing based in Spalding.

Tonic Health took home the Supporting the Community award in 2018, which aims to recognise organisations contributing to the community in which they operate.

Chair of Trustees, Michael Morris, highlighted the awards as being a perfect opportunity to look back and see what they’ve achieved: “We have entered the awards on two previous occasions, and receiving a highly commended both times, so thought this would be third time lucky!

“Entering awards such as the South Holland Business Awards provide a perfect platform to look back over what we have delivered and how this has helped the community. As a local charity, the awards help to put us in the spotlight and have our name mixing with other leading businesses and organisations in the area.

“The award has given us an extra boost to strive and develop our ideas and thinking so that we can grow, flourish and continue to make a difference to our local community. We constantly struggle to get our name out into the public domain – for all the people who know about us and the work we do, there are a large number that still haven’t heard about us, so any publicity gained just helps that little bit more!”

At the 2018 awards, judges were impressed with the cutting-edge support that Tonic Health provided to its patients, carers and carers families and its strong links and effective collaborations with local groups, companies and organisations resulting in a successful funding bid of £108,000.

Michael commented on the award win: “Winning the Supporting the Community award was testament to the hard work we have put into the running and development of the organisation and a huge reflection that we are doing well, so all in all very proud indeed.”
