INTRODUCTION

Barnardo’s is the leading children’s charity in the UK. They believe in helping children no matter what problems they are facing. As a charity, much of the work Barnardo’s does is funded by donations and many of their donors are from the over 50 age group.

To maintain their long legacy of over 150 years, Barnardo’s must now improve their rapport and relationship with the younger generations; particularly Gen Z who could be potential future donors.
