Nisa’s charity announces winners of its biggest ever competition
Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) charity has today announced the winners of its biggest ever competition.
The online competition formed part of MADL’s 10th birthday celebrations and offered prizes of marketing packages worth £10,000 to 10 small charities, to help them to improve their marketing, reach more funders and beneficiaries and become more sustainable.
The winners – a wide variety of small charities, all with an annual income of less than £100,000 - have been announced as follows:
• George Padmore Institute
• Create Paisley
• Bury Involvement Group in Mental Health
• Disability Information Service Huntingdonshire
• Brothers in Arms Scotland
• Nantwich Museum
• Voluntary Youth Manchester
• Ronan’s Trust
• Real Junk Food Project Brighton
As part of their entry, each cause was asked what they would use the funding towards, with the winners’ wishlists including promotional films, local marketing campaigns, new websites, training courses and more.
The winners have been invited to attend an exclusive celebratory event in September, where they will also attend marketing, fundraising and bid-writing masterclasses from industry experts to help them get the most out of their increased marketing budgets.
Nisa’s Head of Charity, Kate Carroll, said: “We’re thrilled at the response we received to this competition. We had 196 entries from across the UK and all of the charities are doing such incredible work.
“We hope the extra funds and support will go a long way in helping our winning charities to communicate and promote their work to a larger audience. We are really looking forward to meeting them all in September for a celebratory event. Even though they are all quite different charities we know they will benefit from spending time with each other as they’ll all face similar challenges whilst running small charities.”
