Your £5 donation could be doubled

There is another opportunity on Tuesday, December 1st, to make money for the Wey & Arun Canal Trust on the Localgiving website.

The #GiveMe5 campaign will double 1,000 £5 donations made during the 24-hour period.

The initiative is on Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving following the retail sales frenzy of Black Friday and the online Cyber Monday shopping boom.

Every £5 gift to a charity made on the day will go into a draw, with 1,000 selected to be increased to £10. And, of course, £1.25 Gift Aid will be added if you are registered for this benefit.

Donations of other amounts will not be included in the draw and the promotion applies only to one-off donations, not monthly direct debits. But donors can make as many £5 donations during the 24 hours as they wish and there is no limit to the amount of matchfunding any single charity can receive.

#GiveMe5 follows the Grow Your Tenner initiative in October, from which the Trust will receive around £3,600 through donations from our magnificent supporters and matchfunding.
