Media Trust Chief Executive and Founder, Caroline Diehl MBE was yesterday awarded the Clarity in Charity Communications Award at the prestigious PRCA City and Financial Awards 2017. This annual award is given by the Company of Public Relations Practitioners, in partnership with the Worshipful Company of Glaziers & Painters of Glass. The awards ceremony took place at Merchant Taylors’ Hall, 30 Threadneedle Street, London.

Thank you for this wonderful award – I am truly honoured to have received it. The PR and wider creative industries have unique power to give back to our communities and charities, and to change lives through sharing their brilliant skills, time and creativity. This is the simple premise behind Media Trust, and over the last 23 years, since I set up the charity, many thousands of PR and media professionals have donated their time. It’s been a constant inspiration to see the impact they all continue to have, and I urge more PR and media professionals to sign up to Media Trust today.
