Chairman’s Awards 202316th February 2023
After a three-year absence, the Chairman’s Awards returned for a special awards ceremony at Belfast City Hall.
During 2021, 173 entries applied for a chance to be recognised for the amazing work carried out by staff particularly during the pandemic.
The evening, which was hosted by Trust Chair, Peter McNaney, included special performances by Equal Notes Choir and guitarist Brendan Popplestone.
Speaking at his last Awards ceremony, our Chairman, Peter McNaney, said: “The last few years have been dominated by Covid-19 and our response to it.”
“Belfast Trust’s response to the Pandemic was truly remarkable. You might say it was your finest hour. The courage, ingenuity, and utter speed with which this Trust went about its business was staggering. In addition, the resilience and fortitude you and your colleagues showed was like nothing I had witnessed before.”
