First Phiatus charity award winner named

The Worshipful Company of Actuaries (WCA) has selected Ella Spencer as the first winner of the Phiatus award for the member of the profession who has done most for charity in the past year.


Members of the awarding committee were impressed with her fundraising and help in Africa for Gambia Upcountry Development, which was reported in the March 2011 issue of The Actuary magazine.

As winner, Spencer has been invited to one of the WCA’s livery dinners, at which she will be presented with a certificate, a cup or salver to be kept for one year and a cheque for the Gambia Upcountry Development from The Company of Actuaries Charitable Trust. 

In addition, for this year’s winner only, there will be a special lunch as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.  

Remember to let us know if you are taking part in any charity events, so we can monitor your fundraising activities against our £1m target. You can do this by emailing Yvonne Wan at [email protected] or Charles Cowling at [email protected].
