The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) are encouraging charities to make the most of the above event with a raft of free tools and ideas.

Taking place on 15 December 2017 the DCMS have released a digital toolkit including a range of logos that charities can adapt to fit their branding, posters and ideas including planning social media content, writing a guest blog for the DCMS website, and advice on using the #LocalCharitiesDay hashtag and signing ​up ​to ​the #LocalCharitiesDay ​Thunderclap.

There is also an interactive map showing the charities that are taking part and that local charities can add themselves to.

Last year saw the first Local Charities Day take place, with a range of activities across the country as well as free learning opportunities offered by the FSI, and matched giving from the government for Localgiving‘s Grow Your Tenner campaign (now closed) in the run up to the day.
