March 2024 Newsletter

Celebrating Our Collective Success in 2023

We want to start by giving every one of you a big shout-out and a huge congratulations for the hard work that was done in 2023!

Your dedication was truly remarkable. Not only did you raise over £8 million for fantastic causes, but you also achieved a significant 18% increase in fundraising alongside a 27% rise in orders, totalling an impressive 685k orders. This outstanding growth and the sheer volume of support has left us in awe. A huge congratulations and well done to everyone involved – your efforts have made a real difference. We are seriously impressed, and we want to say a massive well done.

Since we launched nearly 10 years ago, you’ve helped fundraise a whopping £30 million! That deserves a huge pat on the back for all the effort and dedication you've put in.

Our community is stronger and bigger than ever. We welcomed 40% more organisations in 2023 than in 2022. It’s clear that the word is spreading even more on how our platforms can help streamline your fundraising and events, and it's great to see so many new faces joining us and becoming even greater superhero fundraisers!

You’ve got a lot to be proud of, and there’s plenty more we can do together. We’ve listened to all your comments and ideas on how our platforms could help you even further and we have some fantastic news in 2024, introducing three super new features for you to take advantage of, along with our way of showcasing your hard work.

I would personally like to say a big thank you to all our organisations and to let you know that our team are 100% dedicated to improving your fundraising lives and reducing the time it takes you to raise even more for your causes.
