The weakened pound means that each pound donated to Hospice Africa now has to go further.
The recent devaluation of the £ has affected many charities working overseas. For us, each £ buys about 15% less Ugandan Shillings than it did a year ago.
Coupled with Ugandan inflation this means we have to raise over 20% more just to keep the value of our support unchanged.
Whatever happens though we are committed to ensuring that the maximum amount of money raised goes to Africa.
We are an all-volunteer organisation and over 96% of funds raised are used for the charitable purposes.
