Success at the Smiley Charity Film Awards for “Daisy’s story”

Our “Daisy’s story” film – created in-house – won two awards at the prestigious Smiley Charity Film Awards 2024 – known as the charity Oscars.

Two awards for “Daisy’s story” at the charity Oscars

We were absolutely delighted that our ‘Daisy’s story’ film won two awards in the Smiley Charity Film Awards 2024. Known as the ‘Charity Oscars’, the awards were announced on 20 March 2024 at the Odeon Luxe Leicester Square.

As this was the first time we had ever entered a film, we didn’t know what to expect, so we were thrilled when ‘Daisy’s story’ not only won a People’s Choice Silver Award in our income category, but also received a Judges’ Bronze Award!

The Judges’ Award was based on an evaluation of the film’s impact and technical standards by an expert panel of high-profile and expert individuals from the worlds of fundraising, business, entertainment and media. The People’s Choice Award was based on the number of votes the film received from members of the public. We were only one of three charities to receive both a Judges’ Award and a People’s Choice Award.

Thank you to the judges and also to everyone who responded to our calls on social media and email to vote for the film in the People’s Choice awards. And, of course, the biggest THANK YOU goes to Daisy – our wonderful star.
