They are in the running for Britain’s Most Admired Charity Chief Executive, Most Admired Celebrity Charity Champion, Most Innovative Charity and Most Admired Charity (respectively). Full shortlists are published below.
Now in its fifth year, BMAC’s special trademark is that the winners are selected by the chief executives of charities and voluntary organisations. Three of the shortlists were chosen by Third Sector from nominations submitted by a ten-strong panel of leaders in the sector. The shortlist for the Celebrity Charity Champion category was compiled by Third Sector from our weekly Celebrity Watch page.
Charity chief executives are eligible to vote for the winners by completing a short survey, which is available at www.thirdsector.co.uk/bmac.
The winners will be announced at a reception on Wednesday 21 November at the City of London headquarters of our sponsor, The Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
