Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, is supporting #GivingTuesdayNow, a Global Day of Unity organised by the Charities Aid Foundation, on 5 May to celebrate and give thanks for the generosity people have displayed during the Coronavirus crisis.
Giving Tuesday is a global campaign which usually takes place in November or December. In response to these unprecedented times, the Charities Aid Foundation have brought the day forward to 5 May, renaming it #GivingTuesdayNow.
The implications of Coronavirus mean that charity donations have dipped, whilst charity demands have risen. This is why it is more important than ever that the vital work of charities and good causes in Denton and Reddish and beyond is supported.
It is free for charities, businesses and individuals to sign up to be part of #GivingTuesdayNow.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“Our charities are working harder than ever before to deliver their missions in the face of the challenges set by Coronavirus.
“This is why I am delighted to be a part of #GivingTuesdayNow to show my appreciation for the charity sector and all those who support it.
“I am encouraging all of my constituents to use the day to show their gratitude for the support charities are providing in their communities during these difficult times.”
Gráinne Mathews, Giving Tuesday Campaign Lead at the Charities Aid Foundation said:
“Charities need help now more than ever, and we’re delighted to have Andrew Gwynne MP on board to celebrate the vital work of charities in Denton and Reddish.
“The UK is one of the most generous countries in the world and we at the Charities Aid Foundation are proud to run this campaign here – it’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase all the great causes people are supporting at this time of unprecedented need.
“We would also encourage anyone who is able to, to think about giving to a cause close to their heart.”
