What it's all about
With charity shops shut and fundraising events cancelled, charities could lose around £4.3bn in 12 weeks as a result of the COVID-19 crisis as demands placed upon them soar.
The WeGive App makes it easier for donors to find causes with which to engage and donate, for charities to make potential supporters aware of their presence,
and allows smaller charities to engage donors and raise awareness for important causes.
