Entries are now open for the Fundraising Champions Awards to showcase your agency’s charitable efforts over the past year.
The awards will take place at the Agents Giving charity ball on December 8 at the Royal Lancaster hotel in London.
The awards will recognise the special stories and community work carried out by the industry for worthwhile causes.
There are six award categories this year:
- Best Team or Company Fundraising
- Best Individual Fundraising
- Best Creative Fundraising
- Best Industry Supplier Fundraising
- Special Fundraising Award
- Best Agency CSR Award
One of last year’s winners was Melissa Green, operations and regional director at X1 Lettings. She organised a raft race on the River Dee to raise money for two colleagues with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
“Raising awareness and money for The Lymphoma Association is a cause which is extremely close to our hearts after supporting two of our team members, Chris and Eve, through six months of chemotherapy each.
“We always opt for creatively unique approaches to fundraising and the boat race was no exception. Building the rafts ourselves and then taking to the River Dee as a 30-strong team to race them was not only a great day out for the team, but we also raised over £2,000 for The Lymphoma Association.”
The Agents Giving ball, sponsored by Goodlord and TouchRight, is also hosting the 2017 Strictly Agents Dancing competition where 12 of the industry’s finest will battle it out on the dance floor with their professional partner to win the Agents Giving glitterball trophy.
Michael Stoop, director of Agents Giving, said: “We are proud we are once again celebrating the amazing fundraising efforts of the industry this year at our charity ball.
“There have been so many wonderful fundraising stories and charity events this year which, once again, highlights the great work that agents and suppliers are doing in their communities.”
