Prize Promotions Limited in administration

  1. Prize Promotions Limited, the notorious Blackpool-based professional fundraiser, is in administration as of 14 January 2015, according to Companies House records (company number: 07829587).
  2. This blog has exclusively revealed how Prize Promotions Limited has consistently misled the public across the UK in its rip-off fundraising activities, often working illegally.
  3. It has been the official professional fundraiser for two “heroes” military charities, first Afghan Heroes and then Our Local Heroes Foundation. I first wrote about Prize Promotions Limited and its role with Afghan Heroes January 2014, just after the Charity Commission announced December 2013 that it had opened a statutory inquiry into Afghan Heroes. That inquiry continues.
  4. On 9 November 2014, I appeared as a live studio guest on 5 live Investigates, the BBC Radio 5 live programme. There we exposed Prize Promotions Limited and its work for the two military charities. In my last post, I described how at December 2014 Our Local Heroes Foundation was still working with Prize Promotions Limited, despite telling BBC Radio 5 live at the start of November that it would stop doing so. Perhaps the charity has now.
  5. Yet at 27 January 2015 Prize Promotions Limited is still apparently recruiting staff to work on behalf of Our Local Heroes Foundation: see its recruitment website, http://www.blackpoolsalesjobs.co.uk/prizepromotions.php.
