Small charity… BIG impact – MACS wins national award!

MACS wins FSI Small Charity BIG Impact award!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that MACS were crowned winners in the first ever national Small Charity, BIG impact awards, as part of Small Charity week, fighting off competition from over 300 other charities. Robbie Crow and Fay Skevington accepted the award at a ceremony in London on 25th July.

The FSI Small Charity Big Impact Awards are a way to highlight the work of small charities (those with a turnover under £1.5 million) and the impact they make on a local, national and international level.

Our members know the difference that MACS has made to their lives, so it’s fantastic that the impact MACS is being recognised nationally. As well as training, advice and a new video about MACS, our prize includes a book containing information about MACS and other award winners being delivered to Number 10 Downing Street.

The judges, a range of funders and well respected charity leaders, said:

“MACS won their category as they clearly showed how they measure their impact, use it to improve their services and share it to build trust. We would like to congratulate MACS on their award and their fantastic work.”

Robbie Crow, MACS’ Chairman, said
“We're honoured that the transformational impact we have on children born without eyes or underdeveloped eyes has been recognised by this award. Above all, the award is testament to the time, energy and love poured into the charity by our family of volunteers, trustees and members.”

We’re really proud of MACS, and hope you are too - MACS would be nothing without its members and volunteers!
