Lesley-Anne Alexander

I am thrilled to chair the judging panel for the 2016 Third Sector Awards. The Awards showcase the talent, innovation and success of charities across the UK. I look forward to joining the rest of the panel to highlight the stories and initiatives that make the third sector such a rewarding industry to be part of.
