Time running out to win a share of £170k

Time is running out for charities from Cheshire, Merseyside and North Wales to win a share of £170,000 in prize money.

Philanthropist Steve Morgan CBE has pledged the money as part of the 20th anniversary of the Steve Morgan Foundation, which he launched in 2001.

There are a total of 10 awards up for grabs as well as a number of discretionary awards and the closing date for entries is October 31st.

Mr Morgan said: “We’ve had a huge amount of interest already but with just a week to go until the closing date, I’d urge charities and not-for-profit organisations to get their submissions in before it’s too late.

“Applications can be made online and the full entry criteria can be found on our website.”

He said he wanted the 20th Anniversary Conference and Awards to be the best one yet.

“Charities have never had it so tough and I really want to shine a light on the charities that have made the biggest difference to their communities,” he said.

“2021 marks the 20thanniversary of the Steve Morgan Foundation and the annual conference is an important date in our calendar.

“After last year’s cancellation because of Covid we’re really looking forward to meeting our wonderful charities again and handing out the prize money.”

Charities can enter a maximum of three categories including the Volunteer of the Year. Cash prizes will be given to the winners and runners-up.

The winners will be announced at the Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Conference and Awards at Carden Park Hotel on March 28th, 2022.

The conference will include workshops, presentations and networking opportunities and will have four themes: tackling mental health post pandemic; diversifying funding options; building community cohesion; and positive engagement for children and young people.
