CHARITIES and community groups are being encouraged to sign up for a slice of a £375,000 fund.
The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation is helping charities through a website which doubles charitable donations.
By making a donation to a charity through localgiving.com donors can double their gift and add another 25 per cent in Gift Aid.
The fund starts from March 1 and will run until the £375,000 is fully allocated.
Several charities in the area have already signed up to the website.
Any charities who want to register with the scheme should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
