People seldom recognise the amazing and wide ranging causes that local charities and community groups support. This campaign aimed to highlight the variety of causes covered by Localgiving members - from cricket clubs to community hubs, homeless shelters to PTAs.
Running between 00.00 on Monday 18th June and 23.59 on Sunday 24th June, this campaign saw all Localgiving members placed into 5 leaderboards. These leaderboards were decided by the primary cause of each Localgiving member - bringing charities with similar causes together under the same banner.
Over the week the charities in each group were ranked by the number of unique donations they received.
