Achievements and awards

SLT is pleased to have been recognised by many organisations for its work in the Islington community.

BMJ Small Charity of the Year

The British Medical Journals employees chose SLT as their small charity of the year in 2014, 2015 and again in 2016 for an extended two-year period. The BMJs support includes fundraising activities, entertainment at our Friday events by the BMJ Band, and technical assistance to create our new website. We are incredibly grateful to have received this honour for so many years running and for the untiring efforts of the BMJ community.

Voluntary Action Islington Awards

We were pleased to have so many SLT volunteers recognised at the 2016 Voluntary Action Islington Awards, these included long-serving kitchen volunteer Brian Devine, the Macquarie and Slaughter and May CoRe volunteers for their work on our back office functions, and Robin King, who received a commendation for Trustee of the Year.

The Stuart Low Trust has been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.
