Over 7,000,000 people were reached during a campaign that saw thousands of pounds raised for various causes up and down the country.

Lee Rayment, Executive Editor of Charity Today who are founders of #UKCharityWeek, said: “From day one, people have been great supporting #UKCharityWeek in many different ways, from just sharing articles on social media to getting out there and running various events of their own to raise money for their causes.

“I cannot say I am surprised by the success of #UKCharityWeek. There is a lot of good people in this country trying to make the world a better place, unfortunately, we just do not hear of it enough.
