Diamond Awards

Family Fun Day

This year, Christian Aid Week marks 60 years of fundraising to bring an end to global poverty.

Churches in Britain and Ireland founded Christian Aid in 1945 to support hundreds of thousands of refugees who lost their homes and possessions in the Second World War.

The first Christian Aid Week took place in 1957 when volunteers from local churches went door to door in their own communities to seek support for the work the churches of Britain and Ireland were continuing to do with refugees in Europe and newly emerging developing countries.

Sixty years ago, Christians refused to stand by while people suffered. Today, as tens of millions of people across the globe flee their homes in search of safety, our generation is rising to that challenge again. We won't turn our backs on the plight of today's refugees.

Please note that nominations for Diamonds are now closed.

Our Church and Community Officers will be in touch with nominees in April.

When will the Diamonds hear about their nominations?

Their closest Church and Community Officer, Jane, Helen or Andrew will be in touch in April.

Each Diamond will receive a certificate, celebrating their huge dedication and support of Christian Aid. 

Will the Diamond’s details be used for anything else?
