Most shared Fundraising Page

In April this year Master Chef contestant Matt Campbell took part in the London marathon. Sadly, he collapsed before reaching the finish line and later passed away in hospital. An incredible 31,000 people came together to raise money in his memory, and the running community from over 40 countries came together to run the 3.7 miles that he was unable to complete.

Most shared Campaign Page

When a fire broke out at Chester Zoo just one week before Christmas, thousands of animal lovers around the world came together to support the Act for Wildlife conservation charity led by Chester Zoo.

From anonymous charity ninjas…

This year we’ve noticed something pretty special. A group of people called the ‘charity ninjas’ who leap into action over night to donate to causes anonymously and quite literally change peoples lives. Over 350,000 donations have been made this year, and together the charity ninjas have raised over £6 million!

…to well-known celebrity influencers

For her birthday this year, beauty vlogger Zoella decided to raise money for Mind – The Mental Health Charity. When word got round about her fundraising, her fans helped her raise over £13,000, making her the biggest JustGiving influencer this year. Nice one Zoella!
