Head of Trading for eBay UK Murray Lambell said:

“Connecting non-profits with our big-hearted eBay users has paid dividends for both charities and our community in 2018.  The growth in the eBay for Charity program in the UK demonstrates the benefits for both charities seeking to reach new audiences and diversify their traditional charity shop model by tapping in to our trusted marketplace model and for shoppers seeking the gifts and experiences that will give back. 2019 is already shaping up to be exciting for us as we look to reach £150M in funds raised by the end of the year.”
