Small Businesses Donate £2 million To Charity, And Winning 'Escape 100'!

May is turning out to be a momentous, marvellous month for Work for Good, sales fundraising, and purposeful small businesses. We have two pieces of big news that we are excited to share.

Firstly, we are over the moon to announce that UK businesses from sole traders to medium sized enterprises have raised over £2 million for charities through their sales.

  • 537 charities have been supported
  • By over 1,500 businesses
  • Through over 6,000 sales fundraising campaigns

This is an incredible achievement, raised through the hard work and commitment of small businesses who are dedicated to turning their work into good. As well as the charities who have welcomed sales fundraising and the support of UK businesses of all sizes.

Thank you to each and every business that has collectively raised this amazing amount of money and helped to make such a massive difference to charity.

Pop over to our Instagram to see a special message from some of the charities including WWF-UK, Refuge and Cool Earth.
