£98,000 raised THIS WEEK

CITY A.M. readers have demonstrated their outstanding generosity this week by pledging huge support for our Christmas appeal.

Through your donations we have raised an impressive £98,000 in the past five days alone, with donations pouring in by phone, by text, and through our website.

Every contribution, no matter how small, is very welcome and can make an enormous difference to our charity of choice, Opportunity International.

Through our match funding agreement, all donations from UK individuals will be matched by the Government pound for pound.

We were very grateful to receive significant gifts from a number of private donors, including one worth £10,000 and a second worth £500. Donations can be made by telephone to 01865 725304.
