Giving Tuesday

A massive thank you to everyone who gave back for Giving Tuesday 2020. Your participation has helped to make something incredibly positive in what has been a very difficult year. It is not too late to show support for the farmers and workers who have continued to grow our food throughout the pandemic. See below for ways to make a difference.

What is giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday - make a world of difference strapline

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving and celebration in support of the causes and communities that mean so much to us.

Developed in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it offers an opportunity to check-in with what really matters to us, and how we can all make a difference to the lives and wellbeing of others.

This year, Giving Tuesday took place on 1 December. But it is not too late to get involved…

How can I get involved?

This year’s Giving Tuesday theme is #GiveBack2020. While many of us have had to close our doors, we have also opened our hearts. Here are three ways you can give back to the farmers and workers who have been so heavily impacted by the current situation.
