Despite economic difficulties we’re still giving

Research from the UK Payment Council’s PayYOURway.org.uk campaign has found that despite the effects of the economic downturn, an overwhelming 86% of Brits are donating to charity.

The average donation equates to £100 per year.  Furthermore, a third of people say they plan to maintain the same level of giving next year despite the current financial challenges, while less than a quarter say they will be cutting back.
