Time is running out to apply for this year’s Third Sector Awards.

Entries to the awards, which celebrate the achievements of charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises, will close at 11:59pm on Thursday evening.

There are 25 categories this year, including the Big Impact Award, Communications Campaign of the Year, Charity Chief Executive and Fundraising Campaign.

Entry fees start at £125 plus VAT and depend on the size of the organisation.

Last year’s winners included the food redistribution charity FareShare, which won Charity of the Year for turning more than 13,000 tonnes of surplus food into 28 million meals.

The awards will be judged by an expert panel chaired by Deborah Alsina, chief executive of Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer.

Alsina won the Charity Chief Executive award last year after turning around Bowel Cancer UK’s finances and developing a ground-breaking bowel research programme.

The finalists will be announced at the end of July and the winners will be revealed at a black-tie ceremony at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square on Thursday 20 September.
