Community health charities receive £265,000 in recognition of their work from GlaxoSmithKline
Twenty-five community based charities have been rewarded for their community-based work, as GlaxoSmithKline awards a total of £265,000 at the annual GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards, run in conjunction with the independent health charity, the King’s Fund.
Celebrating their 10th anniversary, the GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards recognise the work of small to medium-sized charities in improving the health of people in their local communities.
GlaxoSmithKline has over the last ten years given awards to 200 community healthcare charities in the UK with donations of over £2 million. This year’s awards range from £20,000 for the winning ten charities, £5,000 for ten highly commended charities and £1,000 for five runners-up. The funding is unrestricted which means the charities are able to spend the money as they choose.
