The Trussell Trust has been named Britain’s ‘Most Admired Charity’ at an award ceremony run by Third Sector. CEO’s of UK charities and not-for-profit organisations were asked to select a charity which had won their admiration through its achievements. These achievements could include accomplishing its objectives, providing outstanding service to beneficiaries or carving out a distinctive position and voice for itself.
Trussell Trust Executive Chairman Chris Mould said: ‘To be voted ‘Britain’s Most Admired Charity’ by our charity peers is an incredible honour. We are absolutely delighted. The award is testament to the efforts of hundreds of churches and communities across the UK who have joined us to take action against the real and growing problem of UK hunger by starting or donating to foodbanks. We’d like to thank all the charity executives who voted for us and say a big thank you and well done to our highly dedicated staff and volunteers and to all our amazing supporters who make what we do possible.’
