Sector chief executives are being urged to vote online now for Britain’s Most Admired Charities from a shortlist that includes WaterAid, the anti-poverty charity the Trussell Trust and Cancer Research UK.

Those who vote for these Third Sector awards will be invited to the presentation event, sponsored by Deloitte, at the prestigious central London HQ of Google on the evening of 27 June.

The four categories are Most Admired Charity, Most Admired Chief Executive, Most Innovative Charity and Celebrity Charity Champion. Chief executives of charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises are eligible to vote online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BMACs2013  by 31 May.

More than 80 candidates for the awards were nominated by sector experts and Third Sector columnists, and the shortlist was drawn up byThird Sector staff. Stephen Cook, editor of Third Sector, said: " These awards have run since 2003 and are highly coveted because the winners are chosen by the leaders of the sector rather than a judging panel - that's what makes them distinctive, and we hope all chief executives will take a few minutes to make their choices. "

The most recent winners were Help for Heroes; Juliet Lyon, director of the Prison Reform Trust; the youth mentoring charity Chance UK; and the fantasy author and Alzheimer’s campaigner Terry Pratchett.
