Aid groups take the lead in shortlist for BMAC 2004 awards

International aid charities and their senior staff have taken the lion's share of places on the shortlist for Britain's Most Admired Charity, Third Sector's set of annual awards.

Oxfam, the British Red Cross and Medecins Sans Frontieres were among the organisations taking 10 of the 30 places in the categories of Britain's Most Admired Charity, Most Admired Charity Chief Executive and Most Innovative Charity.

The next strongest group was children's charities, with six places, followed by medical and homeless (four each), conservation and environment (two), and animals, drugs, human rights and disability (one).

Famous people with long-standing links to charities feature strongly in the category of Celebrity Charity Champion. They include Prince Charles, the Princess Royal, Sir Bob Geldof and Esther Rantzen.
