While I'm reasonably impartial, I have to say I'm delighted to see Tony Ward from Fighting Blindness shortlisted for an award. And I'm very happy to see Concern's Direct Dialogue team get shortlisted - I always thing face-to-face fundraisers are completely overlooked and undermined in our sector.
The whole shortlist is full of lovely people - many of whom I've had the pleasure to work with.
It should be a great night and I hope you're attending.
Now...to make it more interesting...I've launched the First Annual Irish Fundraising Awards Sweep.
