Charities Aid Foundation held its #GivingTuesday event at Westminster this week, and Stockton North MP, Alex Cunningham, was there to show his support for local charities and the good work they do – and encourage others to get involved.
Led in the UK by the Charities Aid Foundation, #GivingTuesday is the global day of giving that follows ‘Black Friday’ and ‘Cyber Monday’, as a day to give back. The strapline for the campaign is “do good stuff”, encouraging people to do anything from donating money, volunteering, or simple acts of kindness that have huge impact.
Now in its the fourth year #GivingTuesday, over 2,000 charities and businesses have signed up as partners in the campaign including Cancer Research UK, The Big Give, Royal Bank of Scotland, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, the Co-Op and Radley.
Giving Tuesday is a day about giving back, and I was delighted to support this event. It’s a great event and an exciting opportunity for charities and businesses to showcase the work they do all year round.
The day’s aim is to “do good stuff”, and I’d encourage all local organisations and individuals in Stockton North to get involved.
