CLIC Sargent announced as double Charity Times Awards finalist

The Charity Times Awards are a celebration of best practice in the UK charity and not-for-profit sector. Now in their 18th year, the awards are run by Charity Times Magazine - a title for UK non-profit professionals.  

The ‘Change Project of the Year’ award is for a charity that has carried out a significant change project, completed during the past 12 months, resulting in a more efficient or appropriately organised charity to the ultimate benefit of its service users/beneficiaries. CLIC Sargent was shortlisted in this category for the major change project in the fundraising department to a new style of relationship fundraising.

The Campaigning Team of the Year award is awarded to a campaigning team on the basis of innovation and results that achieve, or exceed, the aims of a campaign or campaigns. CLIC Sargent’s successes with our Cancer Costs campaign, which highlighted the financial impact of a cancer diagnosis for families and helped to create a partnership with British Gas, ensuring families get tailored support with their energy bills, led to shortlisting for this award.  

Kate Lee, Chief Executive at CLIC Sargent, said: “We are delighted to be nominated for both awards, it’s brilliant to receive recognition from our peers at Charity Times.

"This is a real testament to the hard work all of our teams do behind the scenes to achieve great things for children and young people with cancer." 

“As an organisation, we all fight tirelessly for young lives against cancer and I hope this spurs everyone on to achieve even more successes in the future.”

This year’s winners will be announced at the Charity Times Awards Gala Dinner & Ceremony on 4 October 2017.
