Charities rewarded for taste, accuracy and design in annual reports and accounts

The winner of the over £2m income category was the Depaul Trust, which also won the category in 1995. Judges described it as ‘an excellent guide to giving’.

‘A clear and deserved winner’ with an income between £500,000 and £2m, Hope and Homes for Children was praised for being ‘very moving and beautifully laid out’.

Judges unanimously voted for Changing Faces for charities with an income between £100,000 and £500,000. ‘A truly excellent report’ was how they described it.

The category for charities with an income below £100,000 went to Studio Upstairs.

Sponsored by Charities Aid Foundation and the English ICA, the awards were launched in 1982 and are designed to encourage charities to produce high quality reports and accounts.

Chairman of the judges, Sir Brian Jenkins, said: ‘As well as recording financial information clearly and accurately, the best annual reports communicate to potential donors the spirit of the charities themselves.’

Prizes of £2,000 and complimentary tickets to the Charities Aid Foundation annual conference were awarded to each of four the winners.
