Chartered Institute of Fundraising Chilterns Awards
On Thursday 10 December 2020 we were delighted to celebrate the second annual Chartered Institute of Fundraising Chilterns Awards.

This year the Chartered Institute of Fundraising Chilterns committee also wanted to recognise the incredible contribution made by a fundraiser who has really gone above and beyond to support her fellow fundraisers in this most difficult and strange of years.
The Special Contribution Award goes to Nikki Wrench, Family Engagement Manager at Make A Wish UK. Nikki set up the amazing ‘Furloughed Fundraisers Facebook Group’, which proved a lifeline for many fundraisers finding themselves suddenly on furlough. Fundraising is about building connection and Nikki’s actions have demonstrated this most wonderfully. Congratulations and thank you.
Thank you to all of our winners and nominees. And thank you to our incredible judges. We are humbled and amazed by what you have all achieved this year.
See you next year for the Chartered Institute of Fundraising Chilterns Awards 2021!
