Each event took the same form with charities asked to step forward and collect their donation and then given a 2 minute slot to explain what they do and what they planned to use the money for.  This format again proved a great success with a number of the representatives saying how much they enjoyed the event and in particular, how good it was to hear from so many other charities in one place. 

The policy for donations remains unchanged – all have to be to charities local to the Region but the aim is always to have the greatest impact.  Up to two large donations are made but most are small at £1,000 or below.  However, these tend to be to small charities.  The impact on some of the charities selected is remarkable and very much appreciated as many of them have very limited fundraising capabilities.
