Back in 2012 the widely read and highly acclaimed morning paper, City A.M, raised £4.4M as part of its Christmas appeal.

They ran their first Christmas appeal back in 2011 and in that year raised £1.58M, so you can imagine how trilled they were to beat this impressive total by so much last year in 2012.

To make things even better, readers donations were doubled in 2011 as a sign of appreciation and congratulations from Andrew Mitchell, the then Secretary of State for International Development.

In 2012, City A.M. were really grateful to all the readers and supporters who helped raise so much for Opportunity International, which is a charity that offers microfinance to entrepreneurs in Africa, who want to start their own money-making ventures. The £4.4M raised back in 2012, and this meant that 330,000 jobs for people living in poor countries were created or kept going.
