A huge congratulations to our eight winners who have dedicated their time and effort to support charitable causes they care about and who have made a significant contribution to their chosen charity over the last 12 months. To recognise their hard work the Lloyd’s of London Foundation has donated between £7,500 - £20,000 to each of the charities they support.

We would also like to thank everyone who applied for an award and for the contribution they have individually made to their communities.

As a board trustee and fundraiser, having lost close family members to blood cancer, and in tribute to friends, colleagues and all of those who are currently battling with blood cancer, it’s very humbling and an absolute privilege to have been selected as one of the winners for this incredible and generous award. The award is a testament to the amazing work done by the entire Blood Cancer UK team and will be put to good use in the road to beating blood cancer. Thank you Lloyd’s of London!
