We’re delighted to announce that Benefacto has won a Big Society Award, presented at our 1500 Volunteer event on Tuesday 17 November, by Tom Levitt.
Prime minister David Cameron said of Benefacto: ‘By bringing together companies looking for ways to make staff volunteering easy with charities that need their support, Benefacto helps even more people give something back to their local communities. I am delighted to recognise their work with a Big Society Award.’
Benefacto is absolutely thrilled to be the latest winner of the Prime Minster’s Big Society Award, and to have our hard work recognised. The Big Society Awards recognise businesses making an outstanding contribution to the community, and improving lives through social action. This award really emphasises the potential that effective partnerships between business and the third sector have for investing in our communities.
With the help of our fantastic charity and business partners, we’ve already helped over 1,500 volunteers across London to give 2,667 days of valuable time to small charities, and facilitated meaningful community engagement. We’re by no means stopping here; in 2016 we want to double the amount of volunteers, work with ten more charities, and help even more businesses make a meaningful contribution to their communities.
We'd love to help you to get more colleagues doing high impact volunteering
