The Children's Health Fund pioneered a sugary drinks levy on soft drinks working with over 100 restaurant outlets in the UK to raise money for children's projects. The money raised was granted to over 50 projects across the UK improving children's health. 

It ran from Autumn 2015 through to April 2018, when with the introduction of the Soft Drinks Industry Levy, we have passed the baton on to Government.

The judges of the Awards praised the project, calling it:

"A hugely successful partnership based around a core social issue, showing great examples of excellence and communication in delivery."

Sustain is now championing work to tackle sugar consumption and food poverty in communities throughout the UK. 

Sustain was also shortlisted for two other catergories
