Nominate a charity to receive up to £5,000 with our Charity Award

Do you know a charity that could benefit from a donation of £5,000 this year?

Our 2021 Charity Award nomination process

Nominations have now closed. Our charity team will now work to shortlist all the charities nominated to the final ten.

Thank you to everyone who nominated!


Launched in 2017, the interest in our Charity Award has grown significantly. Our main objective is simple, we aim to support registered charities with the possibility of a donation.

Each year we ask our members and the public to nominate their favourite charities.

At the end of the nomination process, our charity team shortlist the charities to the final ten. Then comes the exciting part, as the voting for the ten charities is set live and it’s up to our final ten (with a little help from us), to get as many votes as possible from their supporters.

The three with the most votes are awarded a donation as follows: 1st place £5,000 2nd place £1,500 and 3rd place £1,000.

Criteria for Charity Award

  • Charities nominated must be registered charities on the website
  • Priority will be given to charities aimed at relieving hardship, poverty or suffering
  • We favour charities that are perhaps less well known and where a donation of £5,000 would make a considerable difference
  • Recipient charities will be required to use their best endeavours to promote their relationship with the Society and must agree to participate in publicity photos etc. if required
  • Charities will need to engage with their supporters in order to gain votes

There are a few exclusions to be aware of:

  • Charities nominated must not be related to companies, political parties or religious groups (unless the project will benefit the wider community)
  • Charities should be UK based
  • Donations are not available for statutory services, such as libraries and hospitals
  • Charities who reached the final ten of the 2020 Charity Award will not be eligible for the 2021 Charity Award
