Guardian and Observer charity appeal raises more than £1.5m

Guardian and Observer readers have raised £1,531,000 for three UK charities tackling youth homelessness and refugee destitution.

More than 15,000 readers donated to the papers’ 2017 charity appeal, the third year in succession that it has passed the £1.5m mark. The funds will be shared between Centrepoint, Depaul UK, and the No Accommodation Network (Naccom).
Naccom's share of the money will be used to build capacity in the network and increase its ability to tackle refugee destitution.The bulk of the money will be distributed among its 46 full member organisations from Brighton to Glasgow.
