Pascale Harvie, President and General Manager of JustGiving said: “The last few years have been really hard for a lot of people, the COVID-19 pandemic followed by a cost-of-living crisis has meant that people have been through and continue to cope with the toughest of times.

“Yet, despite this, people of all ages continue to take action and support the causes they love. Our fundraisers and crowdfunders are extraordinary and what they have collectively achieved to benefit more than 20,000 charities and causes in the last year alone is remarkable.”
