A bit of maths for you: if you raise 23p per minute, for 24 hours per day, for 30 days, what does it add up to? Well, it’s a surprisingly grand total of £10,000, and this is the sum that Encompass Trust raised during the month of April in response to a fundraising challenge from the online donations platform GlobalGiving.
The £10,000 included top prizes from GlobalGiving: cash awards for raising the most money of any participating charity, and for attracting the largest number of individual donors. Encompass Alumni put in sterling work, designing and distributing posters, organising events, and (relentlessly at times) pursuing potential donors.
We owe a huge debt of thanks to everyone who engaged so energetically in making this happen, and a huge debt of gratitude to all those who made donations to further the trust’s cause.
