In the last few weeks, three of the brilliant groups I’ve been supporting have successfully become registered charities, hopefully unlocking further opportunities for each of them. This is great timing, as the inaugural Local Charities Day is coming up on 16 December!
The three charities do very different work, which goes to show the enormous variety of wonderful work that benefits people and communities.
This Friday is the very first Local Charities Day, a day to celebrate small, local charities and community groups.
Local charities are being encouraged to use the day to showcase their great work and celebrate their successes.
In January, I posted results of research carried out by TSB, which suggested that only 10% of the population could name two or more local charities. Perhaps Friday will be a good reason to spread the word about the wonderful work of local charities that happens every day!
To join in with showcasing your local charity, find out how here. And of course, you can join in on Twitter using the #LocalCharitiesDay tag.
