Macmillan in Wales was also named a runner up in the Class Award for Best Communications category for its Counting the Cost of Cancer campaign, which previously won two CIPR Cymru awards and was shortlisted for two categories at the UK Public Affairs News Awards 2012.
The awards were given to Macmillan staff by BBC Wales presenter Jason Mohammad at the ceremony at Cardiff’s Radisson Blue Hotel on Thursday 31 January.
They were accepted by Campaigns, Policy and Public Affairs Officers Lisa Jones and Nesta Lloyd-Jones, who dedicated them to people affected by cancer across Wales and the Wales fundraising team.
Susan Morris, General Manager for Wales, said: 'We are delighted to have won the Most Admired Organisation Award and to have been named a runner up for the Class Award for Best Communications.
'Counting the Cost of Cancer has delivered real change in Wales and our focus is now making sure that people with cancer are getting the financial advice and support they need.'
The awards received more than 100 entries for its six award categories.
