It was a great night for Rooftop at this years' CIH Midlands Awards ceremony held at the ICC, Birmingham.

One of our residents and volunteers Dan Smith won the award for 'Overcoming Adversity to Inspire others'.

Dan, pictured centre, is a regular visitor to Rooftop's offices. He has been an active member of the Resident Action Team in the past and has been particularly engaged with our older residents. He has also been instrumental in helping with computing initiatives in the community. Dan has come on leaps and bounds over the past few years, through his self-determination, the support of his family and the support and guidance from the likes of Kim and Philippa who work at Rooftop, and others. He is a credit to himself, and to Rooftop.

Blakes Hill gained further recognition for its innovative features and

was shortlisted in the category of'Development Of The Year'. Sadly it was

pipped to the podium by Pencric - an ExtraCare scheme in Staffordshire built on behalf of Housing Plus Group. But everyone involved in that scheme should be very proud of their efforts in bringing it to fruition.
