Merton Giving, a charitable partnership between Merton Chamber of Commerce and Merton Voluntary Services Council and supported by Merton Council, is celebrating its first birthday. Since its launch, the business community has responded incredibly to help local causes with cash donations to the Merton Giving Fund and/or non-monetary in-kind support totaling in excess of £60,000. To continue its work, Merton Giving Week is back for 2019. In its second year the week marks a dedicated focus on fundraising to help grow the Merton Giving Fund to provide financial support to charities working locally.
“CSR is increasingly important for businesses and we like to encourage businesses in Wimbledon to give to their local community, encouraging their staff to develop a meaningful relationship with local charities. Merton Giving provides a structure for this and Love Wimbledon is proud to support this initiative”.
– Helen Clark Bell, CEO, Love Wimbledon
Businesses, community groups and residents across the borough are invited to join in and do whatever takes their fancy during Merton Giving Week, 2nd to 8th December 2019, to raise money to help grow the Merton Giving Fund.
