British Gas, Royal Mail and Tesco are among the household names that have entered this year’s Business Charity Awards.

The awards celebrate the efforts of businesses of all sizes that have supported charities and other third sector organisations over the past year. There are 22 categories this year, including four new awards for small businesses.

Among the smaller companies that have entered the awards are Method Creative, a marketing agency in Cambridge, and Whitehead Monckton, a law firm in Kent.

Eighty businesses from across the UK have entered the awards so far, including some of the best-known names from the banking and financial services sectors.

Among the entrants are a number of previous winners, including Land Rover, which won the Charity Partnership Long-Term Partnership category in 2011 for its work with the International Red Cross, and Keyline Builders Merchants, which won the UK Project category in 2011 for its partnership with Prostate Cancer UK.

Companies that want to enter have until midnight on 4 March to complete their applications online on the Business Charity Awards website.

A team of expert judges will decide on the finalists and the winners will be announced at a black-tie dinner at the Grosvenor House hotel in London on 20 May. The headline sponsor is the Charities Aid Foundation.
