Emma Kearsley wins Direct Debit Fundraiser of the Year!
We are very excited and pleased to hear the news that Emma Kearsley has won "Direct Debit Fundraiser of the Year" off the back of the Direct Debit vote in May.

We won £100 in the main vote, but the judges were so impressed with Emma's efforts in raising awareness/votes that she has been awarded this extra prize.

Emma is very kindly donating the £500 prize to LQUK and she will be receiving a certificate and trophy!

Well done Emma!
