Recognised for two-year funding raising partnership between Price Bailey and Action Medical Research which raised over £100,000
Price Bailey, one of East Anglia’s leading accountancy firms, has been highly commended for Corporate Partnership of the Year at the Chartered Institute of Fundraising East Anglia Awards for their work with charity partners Action Medical Research. The awards were held online on 10 June.
The Chartered Institute of Fundraising is the professional membership body for UK fundraising and organises prestigious annual awards to recognise fundraising excellence. This year’s awards focused on how charities adapted to the pandemic while also acknowledging the remarkable achievements made by fundraisers and funders from across the board.
The East Anglia Awards consisted of the following categories: Campaign of the Year, Charity Partnership(s) of the Year, Corporate Partnership of the Year, Grant Giver of the Year, Professional Fundraiser of the Year and Volunteer Fundraiser (incorporating virtual events) of the Year. Price Bailey was highly commended in the Corporate Partnership of the Year category alongside Action Medical Research.
Price Bailey recently completed a series of charity skydives for Action Medical Research in Cambridgeshire, which marked the conclusion of a two-year fundraising partnership during which Price Bailey volunteers raised over £100,000 in support of their ‘Saving Tiny Lives’ campaign. The campaign is focused on research into reducing premature births. Around 60,000 babies are born prematurely in the UK, and sadly 1,000 tragically die, making it the biggest cause of death in babies; for those that do survive, it is also the leading cause of disability.
Catherine Willshire, Corporate Social Responsibility Partner at Price Bailey, comments: “We are delighted to have been highly commended for this prestigious award. Everyone at Price Bailey is immensely proud of the commitment demonstrated by our teams in fundraising in support of this vital cause. We are a firm with a substantial presence in East Anglia, and while we have grown nationally and internationally in recent years, being shortlisted for this prestigious accolade demonstrates that it is possible to combine top-level ambition with a personal, family-oriented culture that ensures we remain deeply embedded in the local communities we know so well in East Anglia.”
Lyndsay Wood, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Action Medical Aid, comments: “We would like to thank Price Bailey for their enthusiasm and dedication over the two years of our fundraising partnership. They exceeded what was an incredibly challenging fundraising target, which will help us to continue our crucial work of helping sick and disabled children lead better lives.”
