The Trust has now received a total of £8,467.50 thanks to generous members and supporters giving money through the Grow Your Tenner initiative.
Our bank account has been regularly topped up since October last year as part of the campaign on Localgiving.com to double £10 donations, with a £500,000 matchfunding pot available to charities registered with the website.
We have 59 people giving to WACT through monthly direct debits via the website. Most of these have qualified for six months of matchfunding and are also gaining us extra funds with £2.50 Gift Aid for each tenner donated.
Other people made one-off donations of £10 or more before the matchfunding pot ran out, to gain £10 matchfunding and also benefit from Gift Aid.
The fundraising total will rise again next month (April) when the final batch of direct debits – those which started in November – will be matchfunded.
Our grateful thanks to everyone who has made a donation under Grow Your Tenner. Along with the people who donated during the two recent #GiveMe5 initiatives on Localgiving.com, you have made a significant contribution to Trust funds.
