Noah's Ark named Fundraising Team of the Year at the Charity Times awards
03 OCTOBER 2019
Noah’s Ark was victorious at the 20th anniversary Charity Times Awards, winning the prestigious Fundraising Team of the Year category.
The winners were announced at the Charity Times Awards Gala Dinner & Ceremony on 2 October 2019 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London.
Noah’s Ark beat stiff competition from Alzheimer’s Research UK and FareShare to win the award at the glitzy ceremony in Central London. The Awards celebrate and reward true excellence within the not-for-profit sector, awarding the work done by charities and individuals who continue to raise the bar within the sector.
The Fundraising Team has been nominated after an outstanding performance during which time the team met and exceeded its targets to support seriously unwell children and their families.
What’s most extraordinary about the Noah's Ark fundraising story is that between 2016-2018, the charity grew its revenue income by 14% whilst also managing to raise an additional £13.5 million for our Building The Ark Campaign. This would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of not just the Noah's Ark Fundraising Team but also the support of our volunteer fundraisers, community groups and individual fundraisers who have helped us throughout our journey.
Alison Goodman, Director of Income Generation and Communications at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, said:
“Winning the Charity Times awards is testament to the phenomenal work being carried out by the charity. I’m so proud that our team has been recognised for its outstanding donor care and the close relationships that we’ve developed with all of our donors. The work with children and families drives us to do more and raise more every day and it’s fantastic that we’ve been recognised for the impact that we’re continuing to have.”
The Charity Times Awards continue to be the pre-eminent celebration of best practice in the UK charity and not-for-profit sector. Now in their 20th year the awards are run by Charity Times Magazine, the leading title for UK non-profit professionals.
