PLMR Giving Tuesday


#givingtuesday is the day to give back and support the charities and causes you love. Whatever you do, we want you to do good stuff for charity this year. You’ll be joining thousands of people in the UK, including some of the UK’s biggest brands, charities and celebrities.

We brought #givingtuesday to the UK in 2014, and since then it has grown to become one of the UK’s biggest days of charitable giving, with thousands of organisations and millions of people taking part.

In 2015 and 2016 #givingtuesday broke the Guinness World Record for the most amount of money donated to charity online in 24 hours, and over 4.5 million people told us that they did something for charity on the day.

Join us again this year on Tuesday 28 November 2017, for one of the UK’s biggest celebrations of charity.
