Retailer John Lewis has introduced the CAF Charity Account to its popular wedding list service. Couples can now ask guests to make a donation into their CAF Charity Account instead of buying them another toaster or towel. The couple can then use the sum to donate to their chosen charity or charities.
Provided they are UK taxpayers, guests' donations are increased by 28% through Gift Aid.
Couples taking up the option can now create a CAF Charity Account at the same time as they create the gift list.
Kerry McCulloch, Head of the John Lewis Gift List, said: "Recently we've become aware that a number of couples were setting up a 'charity list' for their special day as well as a traditional gift list".
