Charities gather to celebrate National Fundraising Awards 2015


Third sector organisations from across the UK have joined together to celebrate the Institute of Fundraising National Fundraising Awards 2015.

The 23rd annual awards ceremony rewarded fundraising success stories from across the sector, including recognition for teams and individuals who have made noteworthy contributions to charitable initiatives.

The awards ceremony took place as part of the three day IoF National Fundraising convention.

Kevin Kibble, chair of the National Fundraising Awards Judging Panel said: “The IoF National Awards are about celebrating the very best of fundraising over the last year.

Being part of the fundraising profession makes me feel immensely proud, and at a time when our profession is under scrutiny to an extent we have never known before, tonight we have honoured some of the very best in charity fundraising, showing just how good we can be and helping make the world a better place for all.
