Community Champion 2017

The food and drink community celebrated success on 21 September 2017 as the winners of the Food and Drink Federation Awards were announced.

Victoria Prowse, Coca-Cola European Partners Ltd.

Victoria is a Senior Manager of Commercial Strategy at Coca-Cola European Partners Ltd and has helped to raise over £2,200 for the Cardinal Hume Centre through a series of fundraising activities including a charity 'sleepout'. The Cardinal Hume Centre is a charity in London which gives local people access to the skills and support needed to help overcome poverty and homelessness.

In addition to her fundraising activity, Victoria has also supported the charity by organising an employability workshop at Coco-Cola Great Britain's headquarters in London, working with a group of 12 people from the Cardinal Hume Centre to provide practical insights on the process of finding a job. The feedback from the charity and participants was overwhelmingly positive and the workshop has been deemed best practice and a blue print for the charity to utilise with other businesses in the future.
