HUNDREDS of the UK’s finest charities have come together to celebrate the start of the national charity campaign, #UKCharityWeek.

#UKCharityWeek is a campaign designed to give the people of the United Kingdom an opportunity to place awareness and fundraising for charities high on the national agenda, and at a time of the year when people are statistically at their most giving.

#UKCharityWeek is always held within the first full week of December, which in the case of 2018 is 3rd-9th December.

Last year the campaign reached a staggering 92,999,791 timeline deliveries!

#UKCharityWeek founder, Lee Rayment said:

“We want everyone to put their differences and their brand egos to one side to come together and get behind our nation’s charities. Whether you are an individual, a charity, a business or governmental organisation, this is the week to collectively say thank you to those people in society giving their all for their respective good causes.

“No organisation is too big or too small. Charity comes in many forms and sizes, but the human race is one, let’s come together and proudly celebrate our efforts if only for a week.”

#UKCharityWeek Founder, Lee Rayment

There are many charity fundraising and awareness events taking place all across the country this week. This year some themes for each of the days have been established to give the public some structure to their activities.
