Robertson Bell is excited to be taking part in this year’s #GivingTuesday campaign. The campaign, which began in America in 2012 before being brought to the UK in 2014 by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), comes immediately after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It aims to get people thinking of others in the run up to Christmas, be it through donating to charity, volunteering or simply helping a friend, neighbour or family member.
To support #GivingTuesday the staff at Robertson Bell have got together to collect and donate food and toiletries to the Northampton Hope Centre.
The Northampton Hope Centre was founded in 1974 and works to improve the lives of anyone affected by poverty, especially homelessness; through services, training, campaigning and advocacy. The Hope Centre is a community charity owned by local people, doing good things in Northampton for local people and has helped tens of thousands of people in the town.
Last year Giving Tuesday raised over $300m in online donations alone with people participating from 150 countries, including Antarctica!
Robertson Bell donates 5% of its profits each year to charity.
