This year 686 local charities and community groups responded to our survey including many Localgiving groups. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to give us their thoughts and share their experiences. Thanks also to Sage Foundation for funding this year's report.

At midnight on Monday 30th April 2018 the curtains were drawn on Local Hero 2018. It was a truly nerve-wracking end to the campaign, with fundraisers fighting it out until the last second.
During the competition participating fundraisers were ranked on the Local Hero leaderboard according to the number of unique online donors who sponsored their page. The top 20 fundraisers were given prizes ranging from £100 to £1,000.
Huge congratulation go to this year's Local Hero champion, Lamyaa Hanchaoui, all of our other prize winners and indeed to all of the fantastic fundraisers who made Local Hero 2018 such an exciting competition.
