London-based Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice won the big award of the night, the scooped Charity of the Year gong.

Speaking after the event Lee Rayment founder of both Charity Today and UK Charity Week said: “I saw huge smiles, excitement, tears of joy, tears of sadness during the stories, but most of all I saw good people from all backgrounds coming together. This is priceless given the very divisive period we are living through, and we just hope that more people get to see this kind of joy and community next year.

“I want to congratulate all the winners tonight, and I believe it is important to extend a great deal of gratitude towards the other finalists who conducted themselves with grace and dignity the whole evening. A fantastic occasion.”
