The Woodland Trust, Life Education Centres, Rett Syndrome Association UK and SNAP have beaten over 80 voluntary groups to win the first Charities’ Online Accounts Awards.

The awards are intended to become a benchmark for good practice by judging accurate financial accounting alongside accessibility, value-for-money and ease of navigation.

At a ceremony held on Friday at Chartered Accountants’ Hall, London, the four charities were awarded first prize in each of their income categories: above £2 million, between £2 million and £500,000, between £500,000 and £100,000 and over £100,000.

After the ceremony Charity Commissioner David Taylor, and Howard Lake, publisher of the UK Fundraising, and one of the judges of this year’s awards, presented a free seminar on Web-based financial reporting. As well as covering good practice in charity
