Testimonial from a learner - Moving to the next qualification due to confidence and support offered
On behalf of our Managing Director, Aneurin Brown and the entire Hallmark team, I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your support with sponsoring the Hallmark Awards this year.
Thanks to your support we have been able to gift our wonderful finalists and winners some great prizes and live stream the event to residents, team members and relatives of our finalists so they could tune in from the comfort of their own homes. We had over 300 attendees to the event last Friday and over 800 people tuned in to watch the event too, which is just incredible.
We really appreciate your support and we hope you enjoyed the awards evening.
