It will celebrate the late monarch's contribution to good causes
Organisers of the national UK Charity Week have announced that December’s campaign will lead with a series of tributes looking back over the Queen’s decades of supporting causes.
This year also marks the 10th anniversary of the popular annual drive and will now celebrate the late monarch’s contribution to charity over the years.
UK Charity Week founder Lee B. Rayment said: "Her Majesty was a very graceful and elegant lady. She will forever be an icon of strength and resilience for our nation. My thoughts are with all of the royal family at this difficult time.
“Earlier this year, we all celebrated Her Majesty’s Jubilee, and keeping with the celebratory nature of the campaign, we will be celebrating the Queen’s charity work throughout UK Charity Week in December.
“This is our tenth year and, of course, the jubilee year; we were always going to be doing something special to mark the occasion. It feels very fitting and natural to pay our respects in this way to our wonderful monarch who has served so many charities over the years.”
UK Charity Week (or #UKCharityWeek) is an annual campaign designed to allow the people to place awareness and fundraising for charities high on the national agenda, and at a time of the year when people are statistically at their most giving.
