  the big give

this coming monday is the big give. give money to one of their 453 registered charities and your donation will be doubled. and gift aid added if appropriate. there's everything on their list from bampton classical opera to the refugee council. if you asked me i'd steer you towards the latter, but i guess you can make up your own mind. if you pay 25% tax, a £50 donation becomes £125. If you are a 50%, well, you should be giving a lot more than £50 to prevent the permanent damage to your immortal soul. you can give online at any time from 10 am onwards. what's not to like?
