The Gift Day International Group (GDI) and Gift Day UK group Group (GDUK) would like to thank everyone who contributed some £55k (including Gift Aid) to Gift Day last September.  Despite the difficulties currently imposed upon us by the Coronvirus restrictions, we are committed to giving as a way of expressing God’s love in word and deed and in consequence, plans for Gift Day 2020 on Sunday 27 September are forging ahead. Many of the charities we support find themselves in financial difficulties, due to either to increased demand for their services or because their income has been impacted by their inability to organise fundraising activities or sponsorship events. To focus our giving, the PCC has suggested that we try to reduce our beneficiaries from 35 to 24 by September next year. On the recommendation of these two Groups for 2020, donations for the upcoming Gift Day will be directed towards the following 29 causes:
