Feeling generous in the south east
It found that people in this part of the UK are very likely to contribute frequently to charity and volunteering, being beaten only by the South West.
77% were found to have given to charity in the past four weeks, 55% volunteer informally at least once a year while 42% formally volunteer at least once a year.
The yearly report, which looks at different aspects of community life, also revealed that one in four south easterners gave up their time to volunteer at least once a month.
But the region was revealed to be one of the least friendliest places after the report found that just 72% of people had a monthly chat with their neighbours.
Unsurprisingly, London is the least friendliest place with just 66% of people having a chat with their neighbours at least once a month.
The West Midlands came third in this category, scoring a lowly 71%, while at the other end of the scale the East Midlands achieved 78%.
People also agreed that the South East was a place where people from different background could get on well together, with 84% believing this to be true.
The South West came out on top of the generosity scale, finding that they were most likely to give to charity.
77% of respondents in the South West gave to charity at least once in the four weeks prior to completing the questionnaire.
The top three reasons people gave for volunteering was wanting to improve things and help people, wanting to meet people and make friends, and because the cause was important to them.
Volunteering was most common in people aged between 65, alongside those classed as economically inactive.
Across the country the average total charitable contributions made over a month was £22, remaining the highest since the questionnaire began.
Although the amount given has remained high, the amount of people contributing to charity has dropped by 7 percentage points since three years ago.
Women were 10 percentage points more likely to give money to charity than men were.
