Annemarie was runner up in the Leading the Way for Change Category and Tees Valley Buddies was runner up in the Valued Service Category. 


This has been a huge achievement for Annemarie and the Tees Valley Buddies team within the small amount of time since Annemarie set up the charity in August 2020. We hope to continue this level of service and help many more families and individuals within the Tees Valley area.
