Helen Wagstaff has been awarded an MBE for her services to charity in the New Years Honours list.

She founded CASCAID in 2017, an industry charity initiative which has raised £5.3m for charities including Cancer Research UK and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Wagstaff said: “I am thrilled with this recognition. Leading CASCAID has been an honour in itself. While I may be the figurehead for CASCAID, this award is a testament to the hard work and generosity of so many people.

“I would like to recognise and thank everyone who has been involved, and I’d particularly like to mention my dear friend Anne-Marie McConnon, without whom CASCAID would not have been possible.”

After becoming Schroders head of marketing in 2000, Wagstaff co-founded Marketing in Partnership, an events agency specialising in financial services, in 2003.
