Blunkett to attend Third Sector's new awards ceremony

Britain's most admired charity will be unveiled at an awards ceremony attended by Home Secretary David Blunkett in London next month.

The event, jointly hosted by Third Sector and Barclays, is unique in that it features the only awards that are voted for by charities themselves.

The most admired charity has been determined by a poll of the UK's top-500 fundraising charities.

"Britain's Most Admired Charity highlights best practice within the voluntary sector," said Third Sector publishing director Vicky Browning. "As well as revealing which charities and chief executives are most admired by their peers, it also identifies the qualities needed to run today's modern charities."

Alice Wilcock, Barclays head of community affairs, added: "We see acknowledging professionalism in the charitable sector as part of our social responsibility."
