Bonfire Creative Intelligence has picked up a ‘Highly commended’ in the category of ‘Best
SME Campaign’ at the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards 2009. The judges were very impressed that a small consultancy had an CSR Policy and actions plan. They also thought it innovative to take staff to see their nominated charity, leading to 100% staff take up.
The National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards have been established in conjunction with the Institute of Fundraising and the Payroll Giving Centre and are designed to showcase the best Payroll Giving schemes in the UK.
Any employer who has achieved a Bronze, Silver or Gold Quality Mark Award in that year is eligible to submit an entry to the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards.
Having been granted a Gold Quality Mark Award earlier in the year Bonfire had been shortlisted for 2 categories, ‘Best Launch of New Scheme’ and ‘Best SME Campaign’. Each category had levels ‘Highly Commended’ and ‘Overall Winner’.
Within these categories Bonfire were up against the likes of Beaverbrook’s, Flight Centre, Kellogg’s and Haygarth. Other winners included Think Money Group, Aviva, Whitbread Group PLC, Howdens Joinery Co, Henderson Group, London Borough of Islington, Police Service of Northern Ireland and The British Heart Foundation.
Bonfire congratulates all the winners and those shortlisted for the awards; and also all those companies and staff out there taking part in the Payroll Giving Scheme – keep up the good work.
