Six charities are in the running for the Most Innovative Charity category in Third Sector’s Britain’s Most Admired Charities awards.
The former cricketer Ian Botham, the TV and radio presenter Fearne Cotton, the music mogul Simon Cowell, the actor Stephen Mangan, the author Terry Pratchett and the news broadcaster Jon Snow are contenders for the Celebrity Charity Champion award.
The deadline to enter the awards has been extended until 26 August. Voting is open to chief executives of charities and voluntary organisations, who can vote here.
The other two awards are Most Admired Charity and Most Admired Charity Chief Executive.
The nominees have been chosen by a panel of advisers and Third Sector.
Everyone who votes will be eligible to attend the champagne reception and awards ceremony on Tuesday 18 October at the Barclays headquarters in Canary Wharf, east London, space permitting.
Last year's winners were the food poverty charity FareShare, James Partridge of Changing Faces, which supports people with facial disfigurements, the offender rehabilitation charity St Giles Trust and the actor Joanna Lumley.
