By the time that they get married, many people have already acquired personal possessions needed such as washing machines, dinner sets and toasters. This scheme enables couples to ask their guests to donate to their favourite charity instead of buying them a present that they don’t really need.Last year Wedding List Giving helped 13 UK charities raise more than £25,000 from just 37 weddings. Already this year over 60 couples have registered with the scheme and an additional 27 charities have just been added to the site.Charities who wish to register for the service can register online at: www.weddinglistgiving.com Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
