Biggest donors help create British culture of giving

The Charities Aid Foundation today praised the contribution of high-profile donors to charity, as the Sunday Times published first details of its annual Giving List, which outlines some of the country's largest contributions to good causes.

John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, which promotes charitable giving and provides financial services and social finance to not-for-profit organisations, said: "It's very good news that so many of Britain's most successful people are continuing to make such generous contributions to the causes we all care about.

"At a time when many charities are fearing for the future and are facing pressure on finances and ever-increasing demands for their work, it's vital that people give what they can to back Britain's charities and allow them to continue their vital work.

"It's great to see successful entrepreneurs and high profile people from the worlds of business, sport and entertainment supporting charities. Their example helps to build the nation's culture of giving, of which we should all be proud."
