Charity Matching Challenge – the result!

A message from the Master:
I want to thank you so much for your generous donation to the charity matching challenge I launched on 1 July.  Over 70 of you made donations which, in total, raised just over £30,000.  We have a “matching pot” of £25,000 and the trustees of CACT have agreed to match the excess.  So, in total, we have raised just over £60,000 for the worthy causes we promoted.  This will mean over £70,000 after we receive gift aid.
I cannot thank you enough.  The “COVID team” who set the challenge are really delighted that we have all, together as a community, achieved so much.  The trustees have, of course, honoured the wishes of those of you who specified charities, and they have exercised their discretion otherwise.  They will be distributing funds this month.  It is so rewarding that we, as a modern livery company, can achieve this goal.
I thank each of you again personally.
