An online crowdfunding campaign for Aish UK has raised more than £1 million in 24 hours.
The Orthodox outreach organisation launched the campaign earlier this week with the help of fundraising website Charidy.
Volunteers from across the UK - young professionals, shul-goers and secondary schoolchildren - made calls and sent emails on behalf of Aish UK, securing pledges from 1,511 donors.
Every £1 donation was matched by three individual donors; the Yad Mordechai Trust, and two anonymous backers. This meant that a final sum of more than £250,000 was quadrupled. On Wednesday, the total amount raised was £1,115,450.
The charity said it would use the money to meet demand from young Jews for more educational events.
