On accepting his award at the event on Tuesday, which was held at Resource for London in Islington, Tim commented, "This award means a great deal to me and represents the time and dedication of every single person involved with TLG. I'm grateful to Charity Bank for recognising the work we do and for the key role it has played in the development of TLG, partnering with us almost since the beginning and growing its investment in us as we have grown."
When accepting the award, Tim said, “I’m honoured to receive this award very much on behalf of the children, young people and families we’re helping.

Joseph Aninakwa, membership engagement manager at the Evangelical Alliance, said, "I was very pleased to be invited to Charity Bank's Impact Awards. It was great to see TLG, which is one of our members, recognised for the amazing work the team, led by Tim, undertakes in partnership with a number of churches.
