Janette Kirton Darling Memorial Prize Ceremony
November 30, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Janette Kirton-Darling Memorial Prize celebrates the initiative of organisations who have developed local community initiatives as effective means to #ShiftThePower to people whose voices are rarely heard in society.
We invite you to our awards ceremony, in which we’ll celebrate outstanding leadership, creativity and impact in our region.
Please join us in our showcase of actions taken by local people to produce a good society in communities that have seen economic decline over the years.
The prize is being organised by CENTRIS though its programme on Rethinking Poverty.
About Janette Kirton-Darling
Janette was a business woman, campaigner, life-long advocate for people who’s voices are often unheard, beloved mother and wife. Frustrated by the marginalising effect of the political-economic circumstances of the region, she dedicated her life to campaigning for economic, environmental and social justice.
She was someone who took action when she saw things that were wrong and needed changing in the area where she lived.
Janette spent several years as a trustee of CENTRIS, where she made a major contribution to the work of the organisation.
Highlighting outstanding community initiatives, this prize is a fitting way to honour her memory.
