Introducing the Benefact Group Charity Heroes Awards

Supporting charities is what drives us at the Benefact Group, so we are thrilled to launch our new awards, dedicated to celebrating and supporting the brilliant charities who work tirelessly to make positive change.

The Awards 2024

In this inaugural year, we’ll be recognising those who have made a significant contribution in the categories shown below. Each award is supported by a business in our Group1.

Volunteer of the year

Judges will be looking for volunteers who have gone over and above, making positive impact for charities, dedicating their time and energy to a great cause.
