Peacock, former chief executive of Guide Dogs, was chair of the Charity Commission from 2004 to 2006. She received the award for what the judges called her "inspirational" contribution to individual charities and to the work of the sector in general.

Leonard Cheshire Disability and Broadway Homelessness and Support each won two of the 23 awards, held at the Hurlingham Club in west London. The event was attended by 600 guests, including Kevin Brennan MP, Minister for the Third Sector, and Nick Hurd MP, shadow charities minister.
