The Charity Staff Foundation Awards celebrate outstanding dedication and achievements made by charity staff and volunteers across the UK – as nominated by charity staff and volunteers from across the UK. The awards ceremony was last night, and our very own Suki Gallagher (director of business development) was there to congratulate all of the winners – and all of the 2012 finalists – as well as present one of the awards.
Suki had this to say when presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award:
“The team at Everyclick and I were delighted to sponsor this award because through our work with Give as you Live we have the privilege of meeting charities all over the UK in our quest to help them increasing the fundraising capability online. I am constantly amazed by the selfless determination of ordinary people who do extraordinary things every day that truly make a difference to this world.
“This is a special award for individuals who have dedicated their entire career to the charity sector and helped the charities they work or volunteer for in a truly remarkable way. In recognition of their outstanding contributions. I am pleased to announce the winner of this fantastic award is Mohammed Saddique, of Victim Support.”
Mohammed has volunteered for Victim Support in Bradford for over 35 years. He has deftly bridged many cultural gaps resulting in increased community cohesion.
He regularly uses his language skills to overcome communication challenges.
Mohammed has made a real difference to thousands of victim’s lives over the years and, despite an illness, he continues to find the strength to steadfastly aid Victim Support with a cheerful determination.
