    This year’s Local Hero campaign came to a thrilling end at the stroke of midnight on 30th April 2019. Thank you to every fundraiser, group and donor who participated in this year’s Local Hero campaign. A particular congratulations must go to those fundraisers who made it onto our hallowed Local Hero leaderboard. Your incredible effort, creativity and generosity made this our most successful Local Hero campaign to date.During the month of April, 453 fundraisers raised £160k from 6,261 donors for 209 local groups.After a nail-biting finish, we are delighted to announce Ben Kane as our Local Hero champion 2019. Ben secured a phenomenal 218 donations worth £10K for Park In The Past Community Interest Company, plus an extra £1000 in prize money. Ben, a Best-Selling historical-fiction author, used the competition to bring his passion for the Roman Empire to life. Ben Kane walked the length of Hadrian's wall in full centurion attire, accompanied by his 12 year old son. The author secured an incredible 218 unique donations for his walk, raising over £10k including £1000 in prize money for Park in the Past CIC. Local Hero Champion 2019, Ben Kane, said: "I've been interested in the idea of Park in the Past ever since hearing about it.The idea of a living Roman museum, the likes of which does not exist in the UK, is absolutely thrilling, and I intend to do everything in my power to make sure it becomes a reality. I really enjoyed taking part in the Local Hero competition and I hope that the money raised in April will go a long way to achieving this dream". Park in the Past said: “Localgiving and their superb initiative Local Hero has made a really big difference to our heritage project, Park in the Past. Sunday Times Award winning author Ben Kane has walked Hadrian's Wall with his 12 year old son Ferdia to highlight what we are aiming to achieve on our 120 acre site in North Wales creating a huge amount of interest and money in the process. The funds from Local Hero will make a big impact this year as we continue building a full size Roman fort and Celtic village using authentic construction techniques and materials. Ben is a real life hero having raised tens of thousands of pounds to date. His boundless enthusiasm and determination with the help of the Localgiving team will enable us to turn our vision into a extraordinary reality for everyone to enjoy as they step back to a land lost in time!" Another £4,000 in prizes have been awarded to the causes supported by the other top 19 fundraisers. Nathan S who finished in third place, securing a £500 prize for Safe Families for Children Wales, said: “I really enjoyed pushing myself, and knowing that my efforts were not only for my personal gain, but had helped secure important finances for a small volunteer led charity I found it enjoyable getting on the leaderboard early which spurred me on to encourage more people to donate and help secure additional prize money funding for the charity".

      Localgiving ambassador, Bright Light Bright Light has announced that he will be supporting seven Localgiving groups during his tour of the UK in September. Welsh born electro-pop musician, Rod Thomas (AKA Bright Light Bright Light), known for his work with Elton John, Erasure and his stunning performance on the Graham Norton Show, has always been passionate about supporting small, local charities. As an independent artist, Rod feels a real affinity with grassroots organisations. He sees his tour as an excellent opportunity both to bring in funds and raise the profile of his chosen causes. As Rod explained: “The best thing about touring is engaging with local communities and the people who try to make a difference within them. I worked with Lewis Garland of Localgiving to find charities in each city on the tour so that I could raise awareness of their fantastic work and help them out with donation collections at each of the shows. These charities are working hard to address issues where they live and make a real difference, and I want to do everything I can to help them.” Rod has chosen one Localgiving member to support for each of his upcoming tour dates. 20th Leeds : RETAS 23rd Bristol : Borderlands 24th Cardiff: Pride Cymru 25th Manchester: The Proud Trust 27th Glasgow : Theatre Nemo 28th Birmingham : Aston Performing Arts Academy  29th London: Gendered Intelligence For each date, Rod handpicked Localgiving causes that were both close to the venue and close to his heart – these include LGBTQI+ groups, refugee focussed charities and arts organisations.  There are two ways you can donate to his causes: Donate online by clicking on the charity name listed above (this will also give you the option of adding GiftAid). Remember to let us the group know you're a Bright Light Bright Light fan in the comments box! Make a cash donation at one of Bright Light Bright Light’s tour dates (Book tickets here) In the clip below Bright Light Bright Light explains why he feels supporting local charities is so important.  Found this blog interesting?

    In our Local Charity and Community Group Sustainability Report 2017/18 we stated that new Civil Society Strategy and the consultations leading up to it represented a “real opportunity to identify the key needs of the local voluntary sector and to begin to develop the informed, substantive support programmes necessary to help local charities sustain themselves and flourish”. We are encouraged by the government’s recognition of the vital role that local charities and community groups play, and will continue to play, in tackling our society’s most pressing issues. We are pleased to see this strategy addressing many of the concerns and recommendations we have highlighted in our reports. It is positive to see the government directly recognising the importance of ‘place’. Societal issues manifest themselves differently in different communities. It is therefore essential that ‘local players’ are involved in the decisions that will affect them in a meaningful way. We are particularly interested in seeing how the government will go about stimulating cross-sector collaboration at the local level. The need for digital upskilling is rightfully at the heart of the strategy. While there have undoubtedly been strides forward in recent years, local charities and community groups continue to lag behind in this area. This strategy recognises the role that technology can play in reducing the considerable funding disparity between large and small organisations.  We are aware of the important role we can play in this upskilling process and in helping to build a better resourced, more efficient and more effective local voluntary sector. It is also pleasing to see the government seeking to alleviate the fears that many of our members have voiced about campaigning and publicly advocating for the needs of their beneficiaries.This having been said, the strategy could have gone further by revising the Lobbying Act and ending the use of anti-advocacy clauses. Local groups are uniquely positioned to understand the impact of economic changes and political decisions on the ground - it is vital that this knowledge is used to inform policy. This strategy certainly gives us grounds for optimism. However, its true value will only be seen when words become actions. Of course, the success of this strategy will ultimately rely on the government providing the sector with adequate, timely, and appropriately channeled resources. We look forward to working alongside the government to implement this strategy and where necessary holding them to account.

We are grateful to Marcelle for her incredible vision in setting up Localgiving, the only fundraising platform dedicated to supporting local charities and community groups in the UK, and for her unceasing passion for the local charity sector.

We will continue to provide our services and programmes including match fund campaigns, regional development programmes and advocacy work. Looking forward, Localgiving and Raising IT will work closely together to create new, high quality products and services for our members. Should you have any questions please get in touch with the Localgiving help desk who will be glad to help.

    As of 25th April 2017 we will be increasing the price of our annual membership from £72 to £96 (inc VAT) per year. As a non-profit itself, Localgiving is committed to helping local charities and community groups make the most of online fundraising. Since we started in 2009 we have held our pricing static, but just like everyone else, we are not immune from the effects of rising overheads, and so very reluctantly, we have concluded that we need to make a change. We have taken steps to minimise our internal costs, but we also want to run a sustainable organisation that is able to deliver the best possible services to you, our members - now and in the future. We commit to no further increases until at least 2020.   How Localgiving helps local charities & community groups In total, we have raised over £3m of match funding since we launched in 2009, all of which has been distributed to our members. In 2016 alone we distributed £300,000 of match funding, launched a new website and made over 120 technical updates to improve our services. We are vocal advocates for the local voluntary sector. The findings of our Local Charity and Sustainability Group Reports contributed to the government's decision to launch Local Charities Day. This directly benefited our members by bringing in extra funding for two match fund campaigns.  We are currently focusing our efforts on increasing the amount of funding and funding opportunities available to our members.  Since 2009 more than £15m has been raised for over 5,500 local charities and community groups via our fundraising platform.    Below are the key facts about the membership price increase for charities and community groups:  What existing members need to do: If you pay your membership by Direct Debit: Nothing. When you’re due to renew your membership, we’ll automatically collect your payment at the correct rate. We’ll email you beforehand to remind you. If you pay your membership by cheque or BACS: If your membership is set to renew on or after the 25th April 2017, please send us payment for £96 to cover your next year’s membership. We will be sure to notify you again nearer the time.  If your membership is set to renew before the 25th April 2017, then please send us your payment of £72. What new or overdue members need to do: If you complete the registration process and send us your payment before the 25th April, your first year’s membership will be charged at the existing rate of £72. If you complete your registration and/or send your payment on the 25th April or after, your membership will be charged at the new rate of £96. Please feel free to leave us your comments or suggestions, or get in touch with our helpdesk on 0300 111 2340 or help@localgiving.org for further information.
