THE charity set to benefit from a region-wide business awards scheme has been chosen.

As the judges make their decisions in this year’s Test Valley Business Awards, whittling more than 200 entries down to a shortlist of 18 finalists, awards chiefs have revealed the event's Charity of the Year for 2019 - Jane Scarth House.

Jane Scarth House is a cancer support centre, based in Romsey, but supporting people from across the Test Valley area and beyond.

Sarah Rowcliffe, charity ambassador for Jane Scarth House, said:

“Everyone at Jane Scarth House is delighted that we have been chosen as the TVBA charity of the year and we are very grateful for their recognition.

“This will make such a difference to us and will help us to continue to provide the support which is so desperately needed within this area.”

Jane Scarth House will be supported during the Test Valley Business Awards’ 2019 Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony, held at the new-look Army Flying Museum on September 12, where this year’s winners will be announced.
