News Corp UK Donates £100,000 To UK And Irish Charities
News Corp UK has donated £100,000 to four UK and Irish charities that are focussed on providing much needed services and support to communities struggling as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Employees from News UK, Dow Jones and HarperCollins UK voted for Age UK, ALONE, Mind and NHS Charities Together to be beneficiaries of this year’s News Corp Giving programme. All four charities are doing important work in supporting communities during these difficult times and will each receive £25,000.
Daisy Dunlop, News UK director of corporate affairs, said: “This year our News Corp Giving donations, nominated by staff, are all focussed on charities responding to the urgent impact of coronavirus. In tandem with other fundraising through our editorial and radio stations, our partnership with these charities will continue throughout the year to contribute the maximum impact.”
Now in its sixth year, the initiative opens up further opportunities for employees to get involved in volunteering, fundraising and long-term support.
