    Well over a million charities but I guess we all hope our nominations will be successful.

    Are there really well over a million charities? Or do you mean charity registration numbers go well into seven figures? There could be gaps.

    Otherwise, it implies one charity for every seventy people in the country, which means there must be some pretty niche causes out there!

    "This morning, I read someone writing about the charity sector, and they said there are 160,000 charities in the UK. This is a pretty commonly quoted figure – you see it everywhere, not least all over the national newspapers – but it’s wrong. By quite a long way. Next time someone asks you how many charities there are in the UK, here’s the actual answer: nobody really knows, but it’s probably more than 400,000."

    how many charities there are is less relevant , what matters is supporters . all you have to do is nominate your charity , you can opt out of mailings . Don't leave it to someone else
