We’re extremely proud to announce that for the second year running we have won the prestigious Best Lottery Provider Award at the Partners in Fundraising Awards (PIFAs) held by the Institute of Fundraising.
The annual awards (which could be described as the charity world’s equivalent of the Oscars) were hosted by television personality Alex Brooker, who presented our Managing Director, Richard Dixon, with the award on the night.
As you can see from the photo, the evening is a glitzy affair where black ties and fancy dresses are the status quo! Pam, Denise, Karl and Richard from our team were present on the night to hear the announcement that we’d won. The following day in the office was certainly a jolly one, and the award has taken pride of place on the desk at reception.
Here’s what a very pleased (and rightly so!) Richard had to say…
“What a great start to our year! Judged by the elite of the fundraising world, we feel that winning this award for the second year running is an acknowledgement of the hard work and commitment of the whole team here at Sterling.
“We fought off some stiff competition from lottery providers across the country and winning, not once, but twice consecutively, proves we really are the market leaders in our field – offering the expertise, insight and innovation charities need to raise essential funds in the current climate.
“Last year our clients’ lotteries raised nearly £50million for good causes and with this award behind us we are determined to top that in 2015!”
We’d like to extend a huge thanks to our clients and to the IoF for making us your Best Lottery Provider for 2015!
