Diabetes UK’s ‘Diabetes Challenge’ fundraising website –www.diabeteschallenge.co.uk– created with Chameleon Net, has won an ‘Award of Excellence’ at the Communicator Awards.
The Awards, judged and presented by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, recognise outstanding creativity in professional communications.
Graeme Manuel, Digital Media Manager at Diabetes UK, said: "It’s fantastic to receive recognition for our Challenge website, which we created with digital agency Chameleon Net.
"Our aim was to make it as easy and as fun to use as possible, including the tools for fundraisers and donors to spread the word on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. We need as many people as possible to get involved – so why not challenge yourself or a friend to take on a Diabetes Challenge and raise funds to help people with diabetes?"
About Diabetes Challenge
Diabetes Challenge is a fun and interactive website that enables anybody to challenge themselves or someone else to raise funds for Diabetes UK by taking on a given challenge. Challenges can be anything from being silent at work for an hour, to shaving your head, to walking the Great Wall of China. You can also use the Challenge site to gather your sponsorship for existing Diabetes UK events such as Walk the Extra Mile, running events and bike rides.
When our fundraisers use the Diabetes Challenge site Diabetes UK receives all the income – without losing a percentage as commission taken through other, third-party fundraising sites.
Visitors to Diabetes Challenge can access progress updates on all live challenges. They can see who’s challenging who, what they’re doing, who’s donating and how much has been raised so far.
Share information via social media
Users can also share pictures and information on their progress via their social media network thanks to connections with Twitter and Flickr. Using Facebook Connect, they can post updates direct to Facebook, such as new challenges and donation notifications.
