Markel sponsor Third Sector Awards

The event took place on Thursday 24th September at the Grand Connaught rooms in London and included a prestigious dinner and an awards ceremony hosted by popular TV presenter and comedian Alex Brooker.

With over 90 charities, not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises shortlisted for awards, the evening showcased a diversity of talent with examples of hard work, dedication and commitment from teams and volunteers right across the third sector.

Along with being headline sponsor of the awards, we also sponsor one of the award categories, the volunteer of the year award. As the name suggests, this award is about recognising the inspirational work and commitment of individual volunteers. Congratulations to the winner of the volunteer of the year award Alice Walker-Shakespeare from CHICKS.
