Voting begins for Britain's Most Admired Charities

A youth training project, a charity that provides daily meals to children in the developing world and a housing charity are among those in the running for the Most Innovative Charity category in Third Sector's Britain's Most Admired Charities awards.

The five charities that have been shortlisted for the award include the Tower Hamlets Summer University, Mary's Meals and the St Giles Trust.

Also in the running are Mothertongue, a Reading-based charity that provides counselling services to people whose first language isn't English, and Motivation, which provides mobility products to disabled people in the developing world.

Last year's winner in this category was the London Community Recycling Network.

As with all four categories in the Britain's Most Admired Charities Awards, the winner will be chosen by charity chief executives, who can vote for their choices in each category at

The voting closes on 8 March and charity chief executives who vote are also eligible to attend the awards ceremony on 16 March. Duncan Bannatyne, a panel member on the TV show Dragons' Den and winner of the BMAC Charity Champion award last year, will be among those presenting the awards, which take place on the 30th floor of Barclays' headquarters in Canary Wharf, London.

The other two awards are Most Admired Charity and Most Admired Charity Chief Executive.
