Following on from the amazing feedback we have received from our article published in issue 20 of the Hythe Life Community Magazine we are thrilled to have another article published in the fifth anniversary edition. We are so pleased to continue to spread the message to people to enable them to make better, more informed choices about their foot health.
We are passionate about looking after people in our community and education is crucial to enable people to make informed choices about self care as well as who they choose to carry out their foot care. With this in mind we were thrilled to write an article about Diabetes for the most recent issue of Hythe Life. We have received an excellent response from the community about the article so watch this space there could be more in the pipeline!
We had a fantastic team night out at the Kent Women in Business Awards 2019, where we celebrated with 300 others on International Women’s Day. We were fortunate to be finalists in the contribution to the community and the service excellence awards. We were up against some very stiff competition and felt very fortunate to have made the final short list.
We were thrilled to be awarded Runner Up for the Contribution to the Community Award. It is so lovely to be recognised for our work in the community and we feel very privileged to be recognised for our work.
We were thrilled to go live on air before the KWIBA awards ceremony to talk about our nominations for the Kent Women in Business Awards 2019.
Earlier this week we woke up to the incredible news that Jo Shapter has been shortlisted as a double category finalist at the Kent Women in Business Awards 2019.
The categories are the service excellence award and the community award. There were over 600 nominations for the awards this year they largest number of nominations to date which makes us even more proud that we have made the final shortlist twice over.
Now to keep everything crossed until the winners are revealed at the awards ceremony on 8th March 2019.
What a year it has been for us. 3 fantastic awards recognising our work in the community and for our customer services. An ever expanding team- and not just from overdoing on the Christmas pudding! The team has grown from a team of 2 at the start of the year to a team of 6 by the end.
We would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone that uses and has used and supported our foot health care services we appreciate it greatly.
As we get ready to jump into 2019 we have lots of exciting plans afoot-no pun intended! We look forward to keeping you updated as they fire into action.
We would like to wish everyone a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!

On 28th November 2018 we attended a gala dinner for the Ashford Business Awards where we were thrilled to win the award for Best Customer Services and we were up against some pretty stiff competition that night. Jo collected the award on behalf of the team. We are all so happy to be recognised for the care and time we give to all of our customers and the services we provide them.
This week we discovered via one of our lovely clients that we have received coverage from the KM newspaper group about our achievements at the Independent Business Awards Kent. So we are feeling proud of ourselves all over again here at East Kent Foot Care.
East Kent Foot Care was recently shortlisted as a finalist for Business of the Year in Kent and has received the runner up prize in the Community Award at the Independent Business Awards Kent.
Jo has tirelessly fundraised, set up and delivered foot health care clinics to the homeless and vulnerable in Folkestone and surrounding areas has been recognised for her achievements by receiving the runner up Community Award at the IBAK awards held on Friday 12th October at the Great Danes Hotel in Maidstone. In addition to being recognised for the work she puts into the local community her business East Kent Foot Care was a finalist in the Business of the Year Award too. Jo was thrilled to be nominated and even more so to discover she was a finalist in 2 categories. East Kent Foot Care were the only foot health care business to be nominated for these awards and to receive the recognition she has, shows that the importance of foot care across the board is an area that promotes the importance of the service Jo and her team.
