On the evening of 10 June, KHRP attended a star-studded ceremony hosted by comedienne Jo Brand at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel for The Charity Awards 2010, the UK’s most prestigious non-profit sector awards event. KHRP was one of three organisations short-listed in the International Aid and Development category in recognition of the tireless work it does in helping to bring perpetrators of human rights abuse in the Kurdish regions to justice.
“It is both a great privilege and a source of great pride for KHRP to have been recognised and so highly-commended by The Charity Award judges,” said KHRP Chief Executive, Kerim Yildiz. “As expressed by the Award’s organiser, Daniel Phelan, by being short-listed KHRP ‘demonstrated that it is amongst the best-managed charities in the UK’. Accordingly, KHRP would like to thank everyone whose efforts over the years have made its successes possible.”
The distinguished panel of judges at this years event included John Low CBE, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, Maeve Sherlock OBE, former Chief Executive of the Refugee Council, Dame Jo Williams, former Chief Executive of Mencap, Paul Winter, Chief Executive of The Leadership Trust, and Dame Mary Marsh, founding Director of the Clore Social Leadership Programme and former Chief Executive of the NSPCC. Celebrities in attendance at the event included Greta Scacchi, Lynda Bellingham, Jon Snow and Peter Bowles.
