Charity Awards 2024

Charles Harvey: “For our small UK staff team our award continues to be a source of great pride and encouragement”

Five Talents UK won the grantmaking and funding category at the 2021 Charity Awards. Read what the award meant to them from their director of trusts fundraising, Charles Harvey.

I’d say to any charity thinking of applying to the Charity Awards, don’t let the paperwork put you off!

For Five Talents UK, the award has been really important in providing a stamp of quality and external validation on the work we do with our partners in eastern Africa. As a direct result of being featured in Charity Finance magazine, we were contacted by a trustee from a little-known charitable trust who wanted to find out more about our work. We have since secured a long-term funding agreement for a significant sum with the Trust, and we are looking forward to a fruitful ongoing partnership.

We also use the Charity Awards logo on our website, emails and in our publicity, and for our small UK staff team, our award continues to be a source of great pride and encouragement.
