Hand in Hand named ACT’s Charity of the Year for 2nd year running

02 May 2019

Sandi Toksvig, 2018's ACT Annual Dinner host, announces the amount raised during the dinner. The figure was later revised up to £65,000.

It’s the partnership so nice we’re doing it twice.

For the second year running, Hand in Hand is proud to announce our selection as the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) Charity of the Year.

The announcement follows a successful partnership in 2018, which saw the ACT’s members fund their own Hand in Hand Village Programme in Kenya. Once again, fundraising efforts will culminate in the ACT Annual Dinner, this year scheduled for 13 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. 

“In 2018, we were honoured to be the ACT’s Charity of the Year. In 2019, we’re doubly honoured. Here’s to another successful ACT Annual Dinner funding more life-changing business training on the ground,” said Hand in Hand CEO Dorothea Arndt.

Hand in Hand are looking for volunteers to help us on the night, attending the dinner to speak with interested ACT members about our work. To learn more about how you can help, please email Hand in Hand Head of Media Ann Dickinson
