Thousands of people donate, volunteer, lend a hand, and give others a hand up – especially at Christmas. Volunteers hit the streets, colleagues run bake sales and friends run marathons to raise much needed funds that help support charity.
Crawley Lions Club has already raised over £2,800 through a range of activities for our Christmas appeal and without your generosity we would not be able to help Crawley Open House, Crawley Age UK and the Crawley Food Collective this year.
Sadly there are also fraudsters who find ways of duping the public and putting charitable donations into their own back pockets.
Over the holiday period the Charity Commission is running a campaign encouraging the public to make sure their donation ends up in the right hands; the hands of genuine collectors, and ultimately the hands of those who most need help. #therighthands Click on the poster image below for more information.
