Charity search engine Everyclick.com is running a nationwide competition to find Britain's Most Inspiring Fundraiser, in memory of the late Jane Tomlinson. From today until 28 March, Everyclick.com is asking the British public to nominate the unsung fundraising heroes of their communities, with £20,000 going to the winner's charity of choice.
Everyclick.com has joined forces with Mike Tomlinson, the widower of Jane Tomlinson, who raised more than £1.75 million for cancer charities through a serious of gruelling physical challenges, whilst battling breast cancer. Jane died in September 2007, but her family are keen to keep her legacy alive.
Friends, family members or colleagues can nominate someone whom they think deserves the accolade. Nominators will be asked to supply simple details about their nominee and an outline of their fundraising efforts for charity including the impact this has had.
Mike Tomlinson said: "We want to keep Jane's memory alive by encouraging everyone to do whatever they can for charity. Even the simplest things can make an incredible difference, not everyone can run marathons but it can be as effortless as switching your search engine."
Everyclick.com has already raised more than £400,000 for charities in the UK.
The closing date for nominations is 28 March 2008.
