Thank you to all those supporters who helped make our Big Give Christmas Challenge such a huge success!
The Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest online match-funding campaigns. It meant that donations made via the Big Give website during 4 and 5 December were doubled using funds pledged by one of the Trust’s major donors.
Our goal was to raise enough donations over those two days to unlock our full allocation of pledged match funding.
And with a wonderful £2,520 donated through the campaign by supported old and new we were indeed able to unlock that additional £2,500.
The campaign total of £5,020 was an extremely welcome boost to the Trust’s funds heading into Christmas, and we are grateful to everyone who took part.
