The final awards event will take place on Wednesday 26th June, from 6.00-8.30pm at Bates Wells’ offices (10 Queen Street Place, 1st Floor, London EC4R 1BE).

Our finale evening is a vibrant and interactive event, showcasing exciting proposals from our finalists. It is attended by a network of our Awards’ supporters and funders, which includes a myriad of professionals from across the charity and social enterprise sector.  Those who have attended before have said it is a fascinating and uplifting view into the world of impact.

The event will involve one minute soap-box pitches from each of the ten Shortlisted Projects, a ‘market place’ platform in which attendees will be invited to move between presentations and displays of the ten applicants, to encourage individual interaction.  Finalists will deliver 10 minute presentations three or four times, allowing attendees to visit the applicants they are most interested in.   Guests will have the opportunity to be part of the live voting process by asking questions and/or challenging finalists’ proposed ideas.  Attendees votes throughout the evening will decide the winner.

We have been hugely impressed by the projects proposed this year and we hope that all those that do not eventually win, will find funding and other support so that their potential can be realised.

If you are interested in attending our finale event on 26 June, please RSVP to Mona Rahman at to confirm your attendance.
