It’s that time of year again, our search for the ultimate charity champion is back!

Every year we launch our search for the ultimate charity champion to help us inspire the nation to do good stuff.

If you or someone you know has shown extraordinary commitment to a charity and has the potential to inspire others, then nominate them to be our champion now.

The person we’re searching for will have gone above and beyond to support a charity in some way. They might have raised loads of money or maybe they’ve volunteered hundreds of hours. They might even work for a charity and have committed their whole lives to doing good stuff, or done something completely out of the ordinary to make the world a better place.

Whatever they have done, we want you to tell us why they deserve to be our #givingtuesday champion.

Our #givingtuesday champion will chosen by a panel of incredible judges including our amazing winner from 2016 Courtney Hughes. Courtney won the title after handing out 4,000 presents to people in her local hospital in the run up to Christmas time, and this year she has already collected hundreds more gifts for people who will be spending the festive season away from their loved ones. Courtney is joined on the judging panel by two new faces; #givingtuesday’s very own Hannah Iqbal. Hannah is the campaign’s social media manager and can’t wait to read all of the applications, and Janek Seevaratnam from Charities Aid Foundation. Janek is a corporate advisor and works with companies to help them do good stuff.

Our judges. From left to right: Hannah, Janek and Courtney.

The judges will be looking for one special person who has taken doing good stuff to new heights. Someone who’s raised the bar when it comes to doing something amazing for charity and who they believe will inspire others to do good stuff this #givingtuesday.

This year’s winner will be awarded with a donation to a charity of their choice and will become the face of #givingtuesday, receiving national recognition and media attention for their work and the charity they support.

If you think you or someone you know deserves to be our champion then enter our competition here. Entries must be made by 12pm on Friday 27th October. Late entries will not be accepted.

Good luck!
