Friday 16 December is the Government's "Local Charities Day".
The key initiative of Local Charities Day is the #GiveMe5 match fund campaign. During the 24 hours of 16 December, any £5 donation made to charities registered on the Localgiving fundraising platform will be placed into a draw. 1000 of these donations will then be randomly selected and will be doubled by an extra £5 of match funding.
At present, around 60 local charities in Leeds are registered on Localgiving – search for them here So, Local Charities Day is an opportunity to show your support for these causes by making £5 donations, knowing that there is a chance that these donations will be doubled.
