HMDT has been announced as being shortlisted for The Charity Awards, the charity world’s most prestigious excellence recognition programme. All 30 projects have scored highly against the 10 Hallmarks of Excellence, as decided by the 10-strong judging panel of voluntary sector experts across a variety of fields.
HMDT has been nominated in the Arts, culture and heritage category, for our work to increase the impact and reach of Holocaust Memorial Day 2015. Sam Macdonald, Charity Awards judge, said he was impressed with how the project kept the memory of the Holocaust alive: 'I thought it was a really impressive conversion of what had been a day in the calendar for some time but really needed to take off.'
The ten category winners, plus the recipients of the Overall Award for Excellence and the Outstanding Achievement Award, will be announced at a dinner on 18 June at the Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster, London.
