Good morning all,


The results are in. Over 21,000 votes have been cast for the five charities nominated by yourselves, and it's a landslide. Those of you who kept track of the in-progress counts in the Nominations thread can probably guess the winners already, so without further ado here they are:


1st - Alzheimer's Society - 55.09%


2nd - Claire House - 29.75%


3rd - ME Research UK - 6.48%


4th - Whiteknights EVS - 4.49%


5th - Action for ME - 4.19%



As with previous periods, the Payback that members choose to donate to charity will be split evenly between the 1st and 2nd place charities - and we'll match every penny donated with an extra penny.


We'll be opening JustGiving pages for all 5 charities above, so if your preferred charity missed out you'll still be able to donate. Or, if you'd prefer to only donate a part of your Payback you'll have that option.


Finally, third place will be receiving a little of the sharing love as well - over the next 6 months, we'll be engaging in a range of fundraising activities (some internal staff-only, some wider ranging) with all donations received going to the third place charity.

Both M.E. charities failed to make the top 2, but I'm sure they'll be both nominated again next time.
