At a time when Black Friday and Cyber Monday dominate the high street, we focus on the following Tuesday, to give back and do good. Giving Tuesday has become a truly global phenomenon and you can be a part of it. Here in the UK, Giving Tuesday is powered by CAF and we’re proud to be part of something truly amazing. Last year 1 in 10 people in the UK did something on the day and the campaign holds the world record for the most money raised online for charity in 24 hours, raising $64 million globally last year.

Whilst we recognise that you are already generously supporting the charitable sector, we’d love for you to join us in this initiative this year – whether it’s through volunteering, making a donation, donating items to a food bank or buying something from a charity shop – getting involved is easy. 


Celebrities including Richard Branson, Emma Watson, Cara Delevingne and Ricky Gervais who were involved in the discussion on Twitter last year, as the #givingtuesday hashtag trended as the UK’s top trend on Twitter from 8.30am to 5.30pm

More than 2,000 organisations became Giving Tuesday partners last year including Sainsbury's, Thomson Reuters, ASOS and RBS.

How the Private Client team supported Giving Tuesday

Last year, the Private Client team travelled to Calais to volunteer at Help Refugees’ warehouse.

They collected much-needed items to donate to the charity to help support some of the most vulnerable people in Europe.

Help Refugees provide blankets, clothes, food and water, women and children’s services amongst many other things. To do this, they rely on donations and more than 80 enthusiastic volunteers every day to help in the warehouse and keep their operations going.
