Laurence Guinness, CEO of The Childhood Trust thanked all charities for their hard work and congratulated this year’s winners: “We were truly inspired by the breadth and depth of projects supporting disadvantaged children this summer, most of whom would have had nothing to do, gone hungry or been exposed to violence, drugs and abuse had they not received support. We warmly thank the donors who were more generous than ever and the charities that worked tirelessly to keep children safe this summer and helped to make the Summer Give 2018 the most successful ever.”
