£1 Million distributed to Guernsey charities

The local donation website, Giving.gg, is celebrating a major milestone.

Since July 2016 Giving.gg has hosted 120 organisations, and raised £1,014,920.

Organiser Wayne Bulpitt says the whole Bailiwick has benefited from the generosity of strangers.

He said: "We are thrilled to announce this incredible milestone.

It's fair to say that everybody in our community in one way or another is likely to be affected by a charity or a voluntary organisation.

They cover literally everything that we can imagine that makes the Bailiwick such a wonderful place to live."

Mr Bulpitt says it is particularly special to reach this milestone during a difficult time for charities.

He said: "There are the cost of living challenges for charities themselves in terms of their running costs, the additional demands placed on them by people in the community needing their support, coupled with the challenges that traditional donors that give us the money are facing themselves with increased cost of living.

That triple-whammy as it were is making life particularly tough for charities."
