Our 2019 Award Sponsors

Our 2019 Community Awards were held in partnership with The Civil Service Insurance Society (CSIS). The awards were also sponsored by Commsave (Gold sponsor) and Specsavers, Hearing Star and CSSC Sports and Leisure (Silver sponsors). 

“Commsave Credit Union was delighted to be the Gold Sponsor for the 2019 Charity for Civil Servants awards. It was a privilege to be involved throughout the process, from reviewing the incredible work of all the nominees and helping to select the winners, to attending the awards event itself and hearing first hand from the winners about their passion for supporting their colleagues. We were impressed with the community ‘feel’ to the awards, which was very much in tune with our own ethos, and we were proud to be associated with such a positive and rewarding event.”
