The deadline has been extended for entries to Third Sector’s Business Charity Awards 2019, which celebrate the significant contribution made by companies to UK charities and social enterprises.
Organisations now have until Tuesday 12 February to put in applications for the 27 categories available this year. However, late entries will be accepted until 22 February for an additional fee of £25.
New categories this year include Long-Term Partnership and Short-Term Partnership awards.
Other awards include Outstanding Employee, which will go to someone who has made an exceptional contribution to charity with the support of his or her employer.
The co-chairs of the judging panel for the awards are Caroline Bishop, global communications director at GSK, and Clodagh Connolly, senior manager at the awards partner organisation LBG, which measures and manages corporate community investment.
Other judges include Tamarin Fitzpatrick, head of corporate partnerships at Prostate Cancer UK, and Sajda Mughal, chief executive of the Jan Trust, a charity that supports vulnerable women and young people from BAME backgrounds to overcome barriers to integration and inclusion.
The shortlisted organisations will be announced in April and the awards ceremony will take place in central London on 22 May.
