The Adiaha Antigha Community Achievement Awards are held each year to celebrate the work and impact of Hackney’s voluntary and community sector. The awards are held in memory of Adiaha Antigha (pictured on the left), the Founder and former Director of Hackney CVS, who made a huge contribution to the organisation’s success and to the sector as a whole.
