The Blue Marine Foundation, one of CCT's partners and a member of the Chagos Environment Network (CEN), was last night named NGO of the year in the People Environment and Achievement (PEA) awards. The award was in recognition of 'the charity or NGO in the environment/sustainability sector that's really shaking things up - and getting results where they matter most.' The PEA awards, now in its fourth year, reflects a desire to recognise inspirational people who are making a difference to the green agenda and acknowledge their crucial contributions. The judges were impressed by the amount that BLUE has achieved in the short time it's been running. It was also striking that they were the only marine charity represented at the event. They'd like to thank their friends and supporters for helping them to get this far and hope that this award will carry them on a wave to achieve even more in the coming year.
