Paperweight, the Jewish Community’s Advice Centre, was a big winner at last night’s Barnet Civic Awards, receiving the Barnet Award For Outstanding Service To The Community from the Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Nagus Narenthira.

The award recognises individuals or community and voluntary groups based in Barnet who have made a positive contribution to the local community, making an extra effort to bring the community together or go out of their way to help others.
“Paperweight was nominated by a previous client and we were invited to the attend the event at Hendon Town Hall following our shortlisting, but our win was a total surprise,” comments CEO, Bayla Perrin. “We won a Civic Award in 2016 and this is the first year we have been eligible to enter again and we are beyond delighted to be recognised and for the dedication and hard work of our volunteers to be acknowledged by these prestigious awards.”
