The competition has been running annually for 9 years now, with this year seeing a different spin for prizes being allocated for second and third place in the voting.
We'd like to say a massive well done and thank you to all charity entries this year. We have been overwhelmed with the effort and time everyone has invested in #MHCharityComp.
We Hear You
Lucy McMahon, from We Hear You is delighted with the news of winning and talks about the impact this will have on their charity:
"We Hear You is definitely still a small charity but we’ve grown so much in the last few years, with the increase in invitations to clinical events and fundraising opportunities that comes hand-in-hand with that.
"Sometimes keeping track of our limited banner stock and getting it to where it needs to be across three counties feels like a full-time job in itself! So we’re over the moon to have won this prize and be able to build up our materials to get our message to more people."
With plans to use the voucher on printed banners and tablecloths for their upcoming events, Lucy goes on to add:
"Thanks so much to Marler Haley and to everyone who voted for us - all the finalists were such deserving causes so we were surprised and delighted to win."
Michelle from Chelsea's Angels is also extremely happy for winning a prize:
"We can put something together that will make us stand out a little more from the crowd.
"We want to make more people aware of our work at our awareness events, so we can continue our important work of supporting extremely poorly children fighting cancer."
Adding on to this is her thanks to everyone involved:
"Just would like to thank you Marler Haley for such an amazing competition and opportunity to win some great prizes. It really is great when local businesses join together with local charities to make a difference.
"We truly believe that #TogetherWeCanAchieveMore. We would also like to thank everyone that took the time to vote for us too, that means a lot to us as well."
Pawprints Dog Rescue
Kathryn, from Pawprints Dog Rescue explains how their roller banner will make all the difference in their marketing efforts:
"Winning the roller banner will allow us to market our charitable work more professionally. Also when attending events it will be an important resource for our charity to stand out and for our audience to understand who we are and what we do effectively.
"We are hopeful the banner will help us to not only raise awareness for our charity but encourage our audience to engage with us as it will give a brief insight into what we do and will help in getting our message across."
Helping out charities
Andrew Pocock, Marler Haley's Managing Director said:
"We're delighted to announce We Hear You as the first place winner of our annual charity competition.
"Supporting charities is so important, which is one of the reasons we decided to offer prizes for second and third place of the competition this year.
"Our annual charity competition and newly formed charity committee helps Marler Haley support the work charities do every year, and will continue to do so in the future."
