Survey Reveals Community Spirit in Britons
28th May 2012 17:49 - Public Consultation
A poll conducted by The National Lottery Good Causes project to compliment the Diamond Jubilee has found that community spirit is alive in the UK, and locals of Northern Ireland are the friendliest people in Britain
This compliments the Queen’s sentiments – she has said she hopes that her Diamond Jubilee will bring people together in a spirit of neighbourliness to celebrate the voluntary service given by millions.
The market research saw many Britons rated as being good neighbours. People in Northern Ireland are the friendliest – 46% of residents there claim to frequently smile and say hello to people in the street, which is more than double the ratio in the south east at 23% and London at 20%.
In addition, while the UK average of people who have run an errand or done a chore for someone outside of their immediate family in the last month stands at 55%, this figure rose to 65% of adults in Northern Ireland.
Another finding of the survey was that London and Scotland at 20% have the highest rate of adults who do voluntary work at least once a week.
