2017 X-Factor Winners Rak-Su have joined the nation in getting behind Charity Today’s #UKCharityWeek campaign.
Ashley Fongho, Jamaal Shurland, Mustafa Rahimtulla and Myles Stephenson were all on hand to send their good wishes out to the nation with campaign patron Anna Kennedy OBE, but not before being photobombed by Santa Claus!
Speaking on behalf of the group Myles, said:
“We want to give a massive shout out to UK Charity Week and all the wonderful people that are working hard for all the wonderful charities out there. Keep on working hard and thank you for the dedication.”
#UKCharityWeek campaign founder Lee Rayment said:
“It is great to see the likes of Rak-Su throwing their weight behind UK charities and volunteers. It’s a difficult time for many of them, in particular, the smaller community-based ones. Christmas takes its toll on the best of us financially, so it’s important we recognise the extra burden austerity and cuts are putting on our charities when they are left to pick up the pieces.”
#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.
