The chief executives of three charities for children and young people are among six sector leaders nominated for the Most Admired Chief Executive category of Third Sector's 2010 Britain's Most Admired Charities awards.
Martina Milburn of the Prince's Trust, Joyce Moseley of Catch22 and Kevin Williams of Kids have all been shortlisted for the award. They face competition from three other charity chief executives: Lynne Berry of WRVS; Thomas Hughes-Hallett of Marie Curie Cancer Care; and James Partridge of Changing Faces.
The winners of this and three other categories are being chosen by charity chief executives, who are invited to cast their votes at http://tinyurl.com/bmac2010. Voting closes on Monday 8 March.
Chief executives who vote can also apply for a free invitation to the ceremony, which will be held on the evening of 16 March on the 30th floor of Barclays' headquarters in Canary Wharf, east London.
The winning chief executive will be presented with the award by Clare Tickell, chief executive of Action for Children, who won the prize when it was last given in November 2008.
Duncan Bannatyne, a panel member from the TV show Dragons' Den, will be presenting the Celebrity Charity Champion award, which he won last time.
