National Charity Award Winners!
We are delighted to announce our success in winning a National Charity Award for Grantmaking and Funding at the Civil Society Media Charity Awards this week! We were selected from a shortlist of three and more than 300 applicants this year for our innovative Safe as Houses scheme.
Alongside nine other category winners, the Overall Winner and the recipient of the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, Winner, the Preston Road Women’s Centre, was presented with the award at a star-studded black-tie ceremony at the Mermaid Theatre in London on Thursday 9 June, hosted by former BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull.
Tania Mason, editorial director at Civil Society Media which organises the Charity Awards, congratulated Winner, the Preston Road Women’s Centre, on winning the highly-coveted award. She said:
“We had a record number of entries this year, and the standard was particularly high, so Winner, the Preston Road Women’s Centre, should be very proud to have won their category. Their project was very effective.
“For 17 years the Charity Awards have been identifying and celebrating the fantastic work that UK charities do, and the rigorous judging process ensures that only the very best-run charities win awards.”
