Institute of Fundraising Awards NI
Cash for Kids at Downtown Radio, Cool FM and Downtown Country were awarded at the Institute of Fundraising NI’s “Fundraising Campaign of the Year” award for Mission Christmas 2017, and were also nominated for “Fundraising Partnership of the Year” for their campaign with Ulster Bank.
Mission Christmas 2017 was by far the most successful Christmas appeal for Cash for Kids Northern Ireland to date, and was also the first to use a custom-built digital platform created for the whole Cash for Kids charity to manage gift applications and distribution.
