UN International Day of Charity

That the Parliament welcomes the UN International Day of Charity on 5 September 2015, which it considers is an important opportunity to pay tribute to the vital work done by charities and voluntary organisations in Scotland and across the world;

further considers that, with the continuing impact of austerity at home and humanitarian crises across the world, the importance of charities in supporting vulnerable people has never been higher, and urges people in communities across Scotland to do what they can to support the work of local, national and international charities in supporting those in need.
