We also presented special bronze certificates to organisations that had not yet earned 25 Crystal Marks, but have made a particularly notable effort towards plain English:

  • The Occupational Pensions Regulatory Authority for their tireless crusade for plain English throughout the pensions world.
  • Boots Pensions for sheer determination in working towards crystal-clear documents.
  • Colonial Financial Services UK for their support in making Plain English Campaign's A to Z guide available to everybody.

Also at the ceremony, Aon Adjudication Services collected the Honesty Mark earned by their complaints pack.
