The deadline has been extended for charity chief executives who want to vote in this year’s Britain’s Most Admired Charities awards.
Chief executives of charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises now have until 5pm on Monday 3 June to cast their votes online here.
The four categories are Most Admired Charity, Most Admired Chief Executive, Most Innovative Charity and Celebrity Charity Champion.
"These are the only charity awards where the winners are selected by the sector itself, rather than a judging panel," said Stephen Cook, editor of Third Sector. "That's what makes them different, and I hope leaders will take five minutes to make their choices."
Voting remains extremely close in the Most Innovative Charity category, where two percentage points separate the two front-runners. It’s also neck and neck in the Most Admired Charity category, where two of the six contenders have each secured more than one-fifth of the votes.
Chief executives who vote will be invited to the presentation event, sponsored by Deloitte, at the central London headquarters of Google on the evening of 27 June.
