This week is #UKCHARITYWEEK, a campaign designed to give the people of the United Kingdom an opportunity to place awareness and fundraising for charities high on the national agenda. Since 2009, UK Charity Week runs during the first full week in December, and for the last two years we have been a Charity Partner. It is an event organised by the team at Charity Today – an online news site for the UK charity sector. 

It’s been a theme of a few of our blog posts lately, but the importance of raising awareness across the Third Sector cannot be underestimated, particularly for smaller charities like ourselves. Charity Today provides a platform for charities to share their news – stories about achievements & key messages, fundraising events, and other important issues affecting the sector. Charity Today and #UKCharityWeek helps to broaden the reach of our messages across the country.

After the Celebrate Charity day on the 2nd Dec, we will joining those up and down the country by taking part in activities such as baking (on Wednesday) and wearing our Christmas jumpers (on Friday).

We promise to post pictures throughout the week!
