UK Fundraising is featured throughout the programme, as GivePenny shares selected news stories from the site, and discusses some of the fundraising ideas and opportunities these raise, particularly in the area of events and ‘connected giving’.

The show is interactive with viewers able to contribute their views and feedback via Twitter or Facebook.

Lee Clark told UK Fundraising why he started the Connected Giving Show. He said: “If you actively hunt for it, so many positive things happen in and around the charity sector that deserve more attention. The GivePenny Connected Giving Show is all about connecting good causes and great stories with the public in a relaxed, (hopefully entertaining) way.
“After we live-streamed this first show, we had great feedback from both members of the public and from causes we work with on a day to day basis at GivePenny. I suspect we’ll build more episodes of the Connected Giving Show into a series and welcome any charities interested in getting involved or being on the show as guests to get in touch! I see us also working with charities to create their own broadcasts in the future, which would be really cool.”
