  • Christmas biscuits

    Aldi has pledged to give away all surplus fresh food from its 775 stores in the UK to local charities when its stores close on Christmas Eve.

  • You’d be hard pushed to find a group of people that embrace acronyms as readily as charities: from ABG to DBS and SORP, the sector is bursting with them. Not to be outdone, the tech sector is spawning an ever-growing list of letters to keep pace with our ongoing technical evolution (AI and Wi-Fi ring any bells?).

    So just imagine what happened when the charity and tech sectors got together in one room for the annual Charity Tech Conference… that’s right, acronym madness!

  • The UK’s insect pollinators are in a critical state, with around two thirds of all invertebrate species in severe decline. These insects are vitally important, as they pollinate one in three mouthfuls that we eat and eight out of ten wildflowers.

  • Billions of perfectly edible meals are chucked in our bins every year. According to the charity Fareshare, which redistributes supermarket food waste to people in need, 1.9 million tonnes of food is wasted by the food industry every year in the UK. And several million more tonnes are thrown from cupboards and fridges in households around the country, according to resource consultancy WRAP.
