Pure Innovations shortlisted for the Charity Awards 2022

Posted on the 11th May 2022

Pure Innovations is delighted to announce that it has made the shortlist for this year’s Charity Awards, the longest-running and most prestigious awards scheme in the charity sector.

Pure Innovations has been shortlisted in the Disability category for Pure Kitchen, a project which aims to support people to live fulfilling and independent lives with a sense of purpose and belonging.

Pure Kitchen is a unique project, as it gives individuals with disabilities the opportunity to run all aspects of a commercial bakery and the products are sold onsite in a restaurant and distributed to Pure’s chain of cafes across Greater Manchester called Pure Coffee.

The Charity Awards is the sector’s most highly-regarded excellence recognition scheme. All 30 shortlisted charities this year have been judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated best practice in leadership and management, from which other organisations can learn.

The Charity Awards, which announces its shortlist today (11 May), is the charity sector’s longest-running, biggest and best-known awards ceremony. This year’s charities have been judged by an independent panel of charity leaders as having demonstrated outstanding best practice in leadership and management, from which other organisations can learn.

The ten category winners, plus the recipients of the Overall Award for Excellence and the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, will be announced at a black-tie dinner on 16 June, held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.

The evening will be hosted by broadcaster and commentator Ayesha Hazarika, who will be joined on the night by a host of celebrities, representatives of the shortlisted charities, as well as leaders from Britain’s best known and best loved charities.

Matthew Nolan, chief executive of Civil Society Media, which organises the Charity Awards, congratulated Pure Innovations on making the highly-coveted shortlist. He said:

“The breadth and quality of the work being done by charities across the UK continues to astonish. Pure Innovations should be very proud to have made the shortlist.

“For 22 years the Charity Awards have been identifying and celebrating the fantastic work that UK charities do. Our rigorous judging process highlights those charities with the most innovative ideas and the most effective approaches to delivering real change.

“All the nominees on this year’s shortlist are examples of large and small charities who are truly leaders in their field. I wish Pure Innovations the very best of luck on the night.”

Peter Hugh Smith, chief executive at CCLA, Overall Partner of the Charity Awards, said:

“The Charity Awards celebrate the pinnacle of charitable endeavour and this year’s entries are no exception. CCLA is delighted to support the Awards and to help promote the fantastic work that the sector is doing across the UK.  We wish Pure Innovations the very best of luck.”
