Individuals estimate they will have donated 142.53 pounds to charity by the end of 2013, nearly twice the average annual UK donation of 82.83 pounds (0.3 percent of income).

Donating money when a cause appeals and giving items such as unwanted clothing to charity shops (both 56 percent) are the UK's preferred methods of supporting charities.
