Giving Tuesday


From international organisations that fight levels of poverty on a scale that we do not have to face in the developing world to local groups that are a lifeline for so many people here in the UK, charities make a world of difference. I am delighted to support Giving Tuesday. It is a great opportunity to shine a light on the great work that charities do, and to encourage both individuals and businesses to support a cause that means something to them. Charities only exist because people’s generosity allow them to exist. I hope Giving Tuesday encourages us all to give what we can – both on that day and hopefully in future too.
