Award win for Beckie

31 July 2020
Martin House’s director of income generation Beckie Wynne has been named Fundraising Leader of the Year in the Yorkshire Institute of Fundraising Awards.

Beckie won the award in a virtual ceremony this week, one of three categories for which Martin House was in the running.

Leeds Dragon Boat Race was joint third in the Fundraising Event of the Year award, and regional fundraiser Emily Sharman was shortlisted in the Newcomer of the Year award.

Beckie said: I feel proud and privileged to accept this award. There are so many fantastic leaders across our sector it really is an honour to receive it.

“We have been on an incredible journey over the last few years and I am very lucky to have a committed, passionate and dedicated team that inspire me every day to be the best leader that I can be.

“You are only as good as the people around you and I am proud of my team and all the things they have achieved.

“They make a big difference every day to the lives of many local children, young people and their families. This award is as much for them as it is for me. Well done team Martin House!”
