St John’s Hospice in North Lancashire and St Joseph's Hospice in east London were among the winners at the Charity Times Awards last night.

The awards recognise best practice in the UK's charity and non-profit sectors. 

St John’s Hospice won Change Project of the Year for raising its profile within the local community and successfully turning its fortunes around after several years of  financial issues.

St Joseph's Hospice was given the Community Award for its Compassionate Neighbours project, a programme where volunteers provide companionship for patients or anyone living with or caring for a person with a long-term condition. 

A further three hospices were shortlisted this year: Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care in Surrey  for Charity of the Year,  Naomi House Jacksplace in Winchester for PR team of the year, and the Chief Executive of Keech Hospice Care in Luton, Liz Searle, for Rising CEO Star.

Hospice UK and Clydesdale & Yorkshire Banks were nominated for Corporate National Partnership of the Year with a Financial Institution, with the award going  to Marie Curie and Yorkshire Building Society.

Other awards went to Macmillan Cancer Support for PR Team of the Year and the Alzheimer's Society for Excellence in Internal Communications. 

The awards ceremony, now in its 18th year, took place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London. For more information visit Charity Times Awards
