South West say more should be given to charity
A quarter of people in the South West think we should give 2 per cent or more of our income to charity, according to a new survey published this week.
The UK-wide poll, published by the Charities Aid Foundation, shows that a quarter of people living in the South West believe they should be giving a far greater amount to charity than they currently do.
The amount people think they should give is much higher than they actually give, with 73 per cent of people surveyed saying they gave between zero and £100 last year.
Sheila Hooper, director of individual giving at the Charities Aid Foundation said: "As many are feeling the pinch at the moment with house prices falling and household bills rising it is really heartening to see so many people think we should be giving more money to charity.
