Association fundraisers shortlisted in JustGiving Awards
MND Association patron Kevin Sinfield OBE and the creators of the Spennylympics have been shortlisted at the 2022 JustGiving Awards.
Kevin’s fundraising for the Association in honour of his friend Rob Burrow MBE has spanned multiple events and includes his 7 marathons in 7 days challenge in 2020, which has raised more than £2.7 million on the JustGiving platform. Kevin’s achievements have seen him shortlisted in the Celebrity Fundraiser of the Year category.
Charlotte Nichols MBE and Stuart Bates MBE have been shortlisted in the Fundraising Team of the Year category for their incredible Spennylympics challenge they completed in 2021. The event was in memory of Stuart’s brother Spencer who died of MND, and saw the duo complete every single Olympic event in the 17 days of the Tokyo Olympics. They raised over £155,000 for the Association.
The JustGiving Awards celebrate the dedication, generosity and unimaginable feats of fundraisers and charities from across the globe.
You can vote for Kevin, and Charlotte and Stuart, and see the other nominees on the JustGiving Awards website. Voting closes on 11 September 2022 and the results will be revealed at a ceremony on 10 October 2022.
