Finalist category: BT MyDonate Award
BT MyDonate Award, Winner, 2016
Neighbourly is a simple and unique internet platform that connects community projects and charities with businesses and individuals that can donate time, money or surplus.
Their clients include big names like Marks & Spencer, Starbucks and Heineken, and together with many other companies they have pledged a combined total of over £3.7million in funds, over 10,400 volunteer days, and directly supported over 1,500 projects. Marks & Spencer alone have redistributed over 140 tonnes of surplus food with every branch connected to one or more charities.
By running a single platform, Neighbourly has made connecting simple. Their inclusive approach means that companies and charities, large and small benefit, and in the case of the food redistribution programme, charities can focus on front-line support, rather than raising extra funding to provide food for increasing numbers of service users.
Through the online platform you can easily locate projects and charities to support or volunteer with.
