Yet more charity support as giving organisations Back Britain’s Charities!Posted: February 4, 2013
Back Britain’s Charities is delighted to welcome two fantastic organisations – Localgiving.com and the theBigGive.org.uk – who have chosen to back the campaign and highlight the importance and value of civil society.
It’s a great boost to the work that we’ve been doing to receive the backing of these fantastic organisations who push to make online fundraising easy and accessible for charities and their supporters. We look forward to working closely with both organisations as we seek to highlight the positive impact that the voluntary sector makes.
Founder of Localgiving.com and former star of television’s ‘The Secret Millionaire’ (Channel 4) Marcelle Speller OBE spoke for the organisation and told us that:
“When charitable giving declines, it is often the small, local charities and community groups that suffer the most. Many of these vital organisations already operate on a knife edge, so even a small donation can mean the difference between surviving and going under. As a society, we can’t afford to lose them! That’s why Localgiving.com supports the Back Britain’s Charities campaign.”
“The Big Give is delighted to support Back Britain’s Charities. It is essential that supporters, trustees, foundations, corporations and government pull together and continue to find ways to ensure that charities receive the help and funds they need to continue their vital work”.
We hope that both of these groups – and their vast networks of charities & voluntary sector organisations – will play a key role in the progress of the Back Britain’s Charities campaign.
