A Leicester charity has won the Charity Director of the Year award at an East Midlands-based event held online.

Susan McEniff, the marketing and fundraising director for Charity Link, walked away with the prestigious award from the East Midlands Charity Awards which were held on Thursday, 11 June.

The awards event was originally planned to take place in Nottingham but became a virtual event due to Covid-19.

Sue McEniff said: “I am truly humbled and proud to have received the Charity Director of the Year award.

“In a category with so many worthy finalists, I was rather taken aback to win this prestigious award but I am delighted as it helps to shine a well-deserved spotlight on Charity Link’s vital work.”



Susan McEniff director of marketing and fundraising, and Rachel Markham fundraising and communications officer supporting Charity Link’s ‘Wear a funky scarf day’, as part of Poverty Action Week 2015.

Charity Link won a second award as a ‘Rising Star’ in the Fundraising Event category for its annual fundraising event – The Leicestershire Three Peaks Challenge.

Leicester charities made up a large chunk of winners and those ‘highly commended’ within the nine of the 15 categories.

“I truly love my role at Charity Link and it really is an honour to work with such a dedicated team of staff and volunteers and to share the fantastic efforts of all our supporters, helping to improve the lives of local people in hardship,” Susan said.

Charity Link is dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable people or those facing hardship across Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire.

Working with a network of other organisations and a referral system, Charity Link can help those who need it most by providing small grants in the form of vouchers or essential items.

Their support has ensured a decent standard of living for their clients since their beginnings in 1876.

Earlier this year, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Charity Link teamed with LeicestershireLive to help people worst-affected through our There With You fund.

With an initial £96,000 from the Randal Charitable Foundation, Charity Link has been able to support people throughout the pandemic using There With You donations.
