Next #GiveMe5: 16th December

To mark #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, we pledged to double 1,000 x £5 donations made to local charities on the day!

We're now in the process of randomly selecting the successful donations and will be informing donors and charities via email soon. 

You can get involved again on Friday the 16th December, as we'll be running the campaign again as part of the government's newly launched Local Charities Day. Our 2015 Local Charity & Community Group Sustainability Report found that many local organisations struggle to raise awareness of their cause, so it's fantastic to have a day to shine a spotlight on the great work of local groups.

We depend on a steady stream of smaller donations via Localgiving. These donations alone give us the assured income to meet our operational costs. Matched funding, sponsored by both Localgiving and the Community Foundation have further bolstered our funds to allow us to undertake capital improvements to the Shed.
