Lord Ashley said: “ePolitix has simulated parliamentary interest more and more and more. They have got MPs, Peers and the public to be interested in supporting charities like never before. This interest is absolutely crucial.”

Commenting on the awards, ePolitix’s Managing Director Michael Hepburn said:
“At a time of increasing cynicism towards politics and politicians, these awards shine the spotlight on the hard work many parliamentarians devote to promoting charitable causes and campaigns in Parliament, to constituents and to the wider public.”

The ePolitix Web site features articles from charities who nominated parliamentarians for these awards. These charities include BAAF, Barnardos, British Horse Society, Cancer Research UK, Counsel and Care, Ectopic Pregnancy Trust, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, MENCAP, Rotary Club, Teenage Cancer Trust, VOICE, and Womankind Worldwide.
