Give More campaign extended

The Give More campaign has been extended until the end of the year after it gained only 14,547 pledges as of the end of April, against a target of 500,000.

The campaign, launched in April last year, was funded by £1million from the Pears Foundation. It asks people to sign a pledge on its website to give more money, time and energy to good causes. It was originally planned to run for 12 months.

To address this problem, throughout September the campaign will attempt to help sign-ups to see their pledges through by offering opportunities to volunteer or make donations through the site.
