Christian Aid Week Diamond Awards – get your nominations in

This year, Christian Aid will mark 60 years of Christian Aid Week, its annual fundraising week that wouldn’t be possible without the incredible dedication of its supporters.

From the first year, when a generation of Christians decided they would not stand by while people suffered in refugee camps, to today – Christian Aid won’t turn its back on the plight of refugees.

Every May, supporters take to the streets – for door-to-door collections, bake sales, sponsored walks, abseils, among many other events – to raise money to support people around the world living in poverty.

Without this continuous support year on year, that unites over 20,000 churches country-wide, the charity won’t be able to provide security and comfort for refugees around the world, advocating for policies that protect them and helping them find a safe place to call home.

As it celebrates the annual fundraising week’s Diamond celebration, it’s also celebrating the amazing people who make it happen.

Christian Aid is inviting you to nominate a Diamond this Christian Aid Week. Do you know someone who never fails to post those red envelopes through every letterbox in your village every May? Or someone who has raised a staggering amount to help people in need?  Is your local school dedicated to sharing the message of Christian Aid? Or maybe your Christian Aid group never fails to fundraise for an emergency appeal?

You can nominate people in categories including Long-term Supporters, Super Organisers, Working Together and Schools until March 17th.

Please your message with the details of your nomination: name/school/church/group and explain why you are nominating them (250 words max.) to: Christian Aid. Churchgate Court, 3 Road, Whitchurch, Cardiff CF14 2DX by Friday 17th March. Or email your nomination to: caw@christian-aid.org
