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.
All worthwhile causes I'm my eyes, a big congratulations to the two nominated charity's, and a big thanks giffgaff for running these for the charity's well done, great work. also it's good to see the great support too from the members of giffgaff.
