After receiving the last newsletter we sent you a donation of £25. What happens to the money that we sent?
Donations from events and appeal mailings support our work with vulnerable children. For example your donation could go towards our projects that work with families experiencing great distress, or to projects which provide a life line to children in danger on the streets or at home.
I understand that you have a number of charity shops throughout the country. Could you tell me how many you have and where they are?
We have 71 shops across the country. These shops are open from 9.30 am – 4.30 pm six days a week. Look on website to find your nearest shop.
I am interested to know how money is raised for The Children’s Society?
Last year the Fundraising Department raised £30 million and the total income was over £42 million. Out of this 80p in every £1 goes directly to our work with children and young people and 20p in every £1 goes on raising income for our direct work. We raise money from events like Christingle, sponsored runs, companies and trusts, individual supporters, legacies and from The Children’s Society local shops.
