Nominate a deserving charity for the 2024 Sheffield Mutual Charity Award and help them win up to £5,000!

Do you know of a charity making a significant impact in your community?

The Sheffield Mutual Charity Award is now in its eighth year and continues to grow in popularity. Every year we ask our members and the public to nominate their favourite charities to be entered into our Charity Award. This is known as the nomination stage and will close on the 30th June where the charities are then shortlisted down to a final ten by the Society’s charity team.

The top ten will go to the public vote where they have the opportunity to gain votes from their supporters and increase their chances of getting to the top three. The top three places are awarded the donation amounts of:

1st place - £5,000

2nd place - £1,500

3rd place - £1,000

The winners from 2023 were Ben Saunders Foundation (1st place), Cleft Lip and Palate Association (2nd place) and Medical Detection Dogs (3rd place).

Tom Saunders, from Ben Saunders Foundation commented on their win:

“This is absolutely incredible news for us. We have recently purchased a lodge in the Cotswolds and this £5,000 will pay for a ramp to be installed for disabled access. The opportunities this will provide is amazing.”
