CONSUMER confidence fell to just six points above its all time low, according to a Nationwide index released today.After rising to 54 in December, the index dropped to 47 last month, weighed down by a collapse in spending confidence that was mainly caused by the VAT rise and inflation, Nationwide said.The survey’s spending index plummeted by 20 points, to its lowest level (70) since November 2008.Meanwhile the expectations index, which measures confidence over the next six months, dropped by 10 points.“Less than one in five consumers believe things will improve over the next six months,” said Nationwide’s chief economist Robert Gardner.

The late Jonah Lomu was a bona fide… TAGS: FijiThe Greatest Players Rugby’s Greatest: Jonah Lomu LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby’s Greatest: Jonah Lomu Rugby’s Greatest: Rupeni CaucaunibucaKnown universally as Caucau, the Fijian wing ranks second only to Jonah Lomu for his ability to astound on the pitch. After starting out in sevens, Caucau first came to the attention of global audiences at RWC 2003 with Fiji, although not before he’d shunned All Black advances after a scintillating season with the Blues.First, there was a sensational 60m solo try against France, before being yellow-carded for fighting – a sign of things to come. Next, against Scotland, he scored within two minutes with an audacious finish in the corner. His second try was even more outrageous as he skipped and sidestepped past flailing Scots defenders from Fiji’s 22, leading the commentator to exclaim, “Give it to Caucau and he is go-go, gone!”It led to a shell-shocked Chris Paterson saying: “He can be the world’s best player, the type who can win a game almost on his own.” Fiji Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide Expand After the World Cup, the chequebooks were out for his signature, and he plumped for Agen in the Top 14, where he stayed for five helter-skelter years, scoring 65 tries. In this period, his Test appearances were fleeting, though his scoring ratio never diminished.

Stories would drift over the Channel that Caucau had gone missing back in Fiji and was infuriating coaches but, more often than not, he’d return with a big smile, turn in a match-winning display and be forgiven. Similarly he’d frustrate national coaches and his charge sheet included a one-year ban for missing training camps and a three-month ban for testing positive for cannabis.After a spell at Toulouse, during which he propelled them into the Top 14 final with a semi-final brace v Clermont, he returned to Agen before leaving France last year. He was last heard of playing in Sri Lanka and proclaimed an interest in playing at the 2016 Olympics. A one-off. Expand

The event fundraising network effectAs well as reaching a large network of individuals via Facebook, many of whom are not existing supporters of the charity, individual fundraisers often inspire others to follow in their footsteps and fill places at future events. JustGiving has found that nearly one in four fundraisers will either take part in the same event for charity the next year or inspire a friend or family member to take part.This conclusion was based on a study of four major fundraising events held during 2010 and 2011. JustGiving analysed the fundraising activity of fundraisers and their sponsors in the next year. In total, 12% of fundraisers raise money for the same event in the subsequent year, while a further 11% of all sponsors of those fundraisers go on to fundraise for the same event in the subsequent year.Delegates at the event got to see demonstrations of JustGiving and ACTIVE Network’s integrated event registration and fundraising tool for UK charities and event partners.Howard Bell, Director of Partnerships at JustGiving, said: “We’ve been exploring the fundraising network effect – the idea that by participating in an event, fundraisers actually encourage their friends and families to do likewise. This data shows that not only do event fundraisers have a large online social reach, they act as inspiration for others, bringing in new advocates for their charity and new participants for their chosen event. By encouraging fundraising, event organisers give themselves a powerful word of mouth marketing tool.”Sejal Pietrzak, SVP of International at ACTIVE Network, added: “We’ve found that friends and family are huge motivators in not only participating in an event, but also fundraising, and that social media’s ability to foster participation is a critical component”.PresentationYesterday’s conference presentation has been shared by JustGiving: Online fundraising service JustGiving reports that individual fundraisers taking part in organised events reach on average 562 people on Facebook. In addition they help inspire others to take part in the same event.The statistics were based on internal justGiving data for over 300,000 fundraising pages, combined with additional data from Google Analytics and Facebook Insights.The scale of impact of the event fundraising ‘network effect’ was explained at yesterday’s conference ‘Making every step count: How to maximize participation and fundraising at your event’. Held at The Commonwealth Club in London by JustGiving and ACTIVE Network, the conference shared event fundraising insights with an audience of charity fundraisers and event organisers.
