Have you heard the news? Morton Michel have won the Game Changing Supplier Award at the What’s On 4 Kids Awards! Morton Michel have been Childcare & Education Expo’s Headline Sponsor for 12 years and we are so incredibly proud that they got the recognition they deserve by winning this amazing award.

The What’s On 4 Kids Awards is THE event for the children’s activities sector and on Thursday 20th October they celebrated with a black-tie ceremony at Mercedes Benz World in Weybridge. Morton Michel was proud to be headline sponsor of this fantastic event and thrilled to WIN the Game Changing Supplier award!

Rebecca Henwood, Marketing Manager at Morton Michel, tells us more…

The What’s On 4 Kids Awards have always been a key date in the Morton Michel diary and we were proud to sponsor the 16th year of this prestigious event.

The awards shine a light on the very best children’s activity providers and it’s amazing to share so many individual and collective achievements. The increase in votes of nearly 30% in 2022 demonstrates just how much of a difference children’s clubs and classe s make – parents and carers described their activities as quite simply ‘saving their sanity’ and the ‘light in their living rooms’ across unprecedented times.

The evening started with a drinks reception and a chance to reconnect with so many of our industry colleagues, followed by a 2-course dinner, lavish awards ceremony, and dancing until midnight.

James McDonald, our Business Development Executive, welcomed everyone to the awards on behalf of Morton Michel and Dan Nocera, Customer Service Representative (and the face behind our many 5* Trustpilot reviews!), announced the winner for the ‘Most Loved Music, Dance or Performing Arts Activity’ award.

The Morton Michel team were over the moon to win in the ‘Game Changing Supplier’ category! Feedback and appreciation from those you work to support means the most and for us to be in this category and to ultimately win is an achievement we are very grateful for and proud of.

Morton Michel has a long history of working with the Children’s activities sector and we launched our Group policy in 1971 to cater for the wide and diverse range of services provided. We then enhanced this further in 2021 to ensure it continued to fit the unique needs of children’s activity providers. We are also a founding member of the Children’s Activities Association, helping to develop and set benchmark standards within the sector.  We have a shared mission to drive quality but at the same time create a thriving and supportive community.

James McDonald, Business Development Executive at Morton Michel, said “The amazing people and their stories that make up the wonderful children’s activity sector never fail to amaze and inspire, and I was thrilled to have the honour of opening the awards and deliver the welcome address. For Morton Michel to win the award for Game Changing Supplier was an incredible moment. We are thrilled that the work we do is appreciated by everyone we work hard to support and so grateful for all the votes and the continued trust.”
