Hatfield worker’s charity nets top national award
A SPORTS charity founded by a Hatfield worker has won a national award for its environmental work.
Derrick Williams, founder of KitAid, claimed a gold standard award in the UK’s annual Green Apple Environment Awards.
The charity, which was founded in 1998 and donates sports kit to underprivileged people around the world, was recognised for its contribution to preserving the environment.
Mr Williams, a customer experience planning manager at Hatfield-based Veolia Water Three Valleys, said: “We are thrilled to receive a Green Apple Award in recognition of KitAid’s work.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has donated kit, the volunteers who give up their spare time to sort and pack it and Veolia Water for its continued support.”
