Less than a week to go to enter Business Charity Awards

The chance to enter the 23 categories ends next Thursday, 9 February

There is less than one week to go to enter Third Sector’s Business Charity Awards, which recognise the outstanding contribution made by UK businesses to charities and social enterprises.

The awards, which are in their eighth year, are made up of 23 categories, including Corporate Social Responsibility Team of the Year, Outstanding Employee, Project of the Year and Marketing Initiative of the Year.

There are also 13 charity partnership awards covering different parts of the business sector, including an award for the best partnership between a charity and a company in the consumer goods/food and beverage sector.

The deadline for entries is Thursday 9 February.

Third Sector announced last week that Pauline Giroux, corporate responsibility manager at Yorkshire Building Society, which won Business of the Year at the 2016 awards, will co-chair the judging panel.

She will oversee the panel alongside Jeffrey Oatham, director of the London Benchmarking Group, a network that helps companies to measure their investment in communities. LBG is an event partner of the Business Charity Awards.

More than 20 experts in the area of corporate social responsibility will be judges this year, including Oonagh Turnball, senior corporate social responsibility manager at the pharmacy chain Boots UK, and Victoria Bednall, assistant director of corporate partnerships at the cancer charity Breast Cancer Now.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner at the Hilton London Bankside on 25 May.
