There are many reasons people make the decision to get into philanthropy but whatever the motivation it will be important that the money you give, whether that’s £1 or £1m, is getting the most impact possible.

Investment Counsellor Rebecca Cretney is joined by Hugh Davidson MBE to discuss his philanthropic journey and key learnings from his many years of extensive work and research in the field of philanthropy.

Hugh has been involved in the voluntary sector for many decades, first as a prison visitor at Durham Prison, then as Chair of Trading and Member of Council at Save the Children UK. Since 2004 Hugh has been a full-time unpaid volunteer, mainly through H&S Davidson Trust, involved with causes in India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Ghana, and Rushen Heritage Trust in the Isle of Man.
