Used Kitchen Exchange Receives National Gold Award For ‘Global Good’
Used Kitchen Exchange (UKE), the UK’s largest regenerator of used and ex-display kitchens, have scooped GOLD at the national Global Good Awards for their profit with purpose service.
Formally known as the National Corporate Social Responsibility Awards, the Global Good Awards is an ethically accredited award focussed on recognising businesses working towards a better world for people, planet and the global economy. Founded by Karen Sutton, the awards adhered to sustainable principles, with an impressive list of attendees such as BAE Systems, WWF, Marks and Spencer, Companies House, NSPCC and O2.
Fighting off competition from household names in their category, leading judge Georgina Wilson-Powell (founder of Pebble Magazine) described UKE as, ‘an industry disruptor, with impressive scale and measured impact.’
Receiving the award alongside Linda Barker, UKE Customer Ambassador, Helen Lord comment, ‘We are delighted to be recognised nationally for our contribution to behavioural change. This is a humbling accolade. Within any business, it’s easy to see if you are doing well financially, but to know you are contributing to a better world is just sublime.’
