The deadline to enter next year’s Business Charity Awards has been extended until Thursday 21 January.
The awards recognise the outstanding contribution made by UK businesses to charities and social enterprises.
The categories have been updated for 2016 and now include a range of new awards, covering even more industries.
New categories include:
Charity Partnership (Health & Pharmaceuticals)
Charity Partnership (Consumer Goods/Food & Beverage)
Charity Partnership (Travel & Hospitality)
Marketing Initiative of the Year
Project of the Year
Consortium Award (awarded to a partnership between a group of charities and businesses)
The awards also recognise the contribution individuals in the business community make to the charity sector. Categories for individuals to enter include Business Charity Champion, which is awarded to a senior manager who has encouraged charitable giving in their company or across their industry, and Outstanding Employee, which is awarded to a member of staff who has made an exceptional contribution to charity with the support of their employer.
The winners will be announced at a gala dinner at the Park Plaza hotel in London on Wednesday 20 April.
The awards will form part of Fundraising Week, a series of events taking place on London’s Southbank between 19-21 April that aim to inspire and educate those working in charity fundraising and celebrate their role.
