It is with great pride that I was awarded Highly Commended Fundraiser of the Year in this year’s Chartered Institute of Fundraising Chilterns (CIoF) Fundraising Awards 2020. This nomination was for my dedication to support other fundraisers, whilst also supporting causes in the local community.
The nomination was from an old colleague and great friend of mine who is the Ambassador of WheelPower, British Wheelchair Sport. He has supported my journey to self employment, and has been a great help with the Community Fundraising Support Group on Facebook.
The awards were on Zoom with almost 100 fundraisers, nominee’s, and supporters all getting together to celebrate the wonderful achievements of the Chilterns area. Five minutes in and there wasn’t a dry eye in sight! It was so inspiring to hear so many amazing stories of the hard work and dedication of fundraisers, supporters, volunteers, and how the power of community really does shine in times of need.
