Mumsnet Giving Week

just giving

Mumsnet users have always shown each other support in times of need, and we wanted to acknowledge this by recognising some of the external organisations that do the same. In our inaugural Giving Week, we shone a light on five great causes - two fantastic charities and three inspiring community projects - nominated by Mumsnetters, that are making a difference in people's lives.

Final total: £11,302.43 which when we matched, rose to £22,604.86.
