Inspiration Awards and Kaz Hawkins

Foster carers and staff from Capstone Midlands gathered for a festive lunch and celebration of foster carers with an ‘Inspiration Award’ ceremony. They were joined by celebrity singer Kaz Hawkins who spoke and sang about her own experiences of the care system.

The event took place at the Hilton in Warwick, a central location for foster carers across the midlands region. Sara Chambers-Ross, Regional Director for the midlands, organised the event. She said:

“I wanted to organise something really special to the foster carers in the midlands. Each and every carer deserved to be acknowledged for what they do each day to change children’s lives. The Inspiration Awards went to a selection of carers for their outstanding service.”

Awards were given out to carers by Richard Compton-Burnett, CEO of Capstone Foster Care, Sara Chambers-Ross, Regional Director for the Midlands region and special guest singer Kaz Hawkins. Foster carers were impressed by the celebration, and one added: “The talk by Kaz Hawkins was very touching. Her children were placed in foster care and she delivered a strong message, thanking foster carers like us, for looking after her children when she was unable to do so. It was really interesting to hear her perspective as that viewpoint isn’t often heard.”
