Pledges needed now for our Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021!
In December 2020 we took part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge (the UKs largest match funding campaign) for the first time.
Thanks to the support of our pledgers and donors we raised just under £7,500, enabling us to provide 75 vulnerable people with Hollie Guard Extra, our 24/7 professional security monitoring service.
We are back again for this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021, and we need your help so that we can double donations to our charity during the campaign (30th Nov – 7th Dec).
This year, through the Big Give Christmas Challenge, we are fundraising to provide 20 Healthy Relationships Workshops in schools (or colleges), to a total of 600 students. Our specially created Workshops give young people the information and tools needed to create happy and healthy relationships. Our Workshops are very popular, and we often get invited back by the schools we visit. It is a joy for us to offer this potentially lifesaving information to young people, but there is a significant cost to The Trust of providing it.
We are seeking people, businesses or organisations to be our ‘pledgers’ – people who make a promise of funding (pledges) to create our match funding pot for the campaign. Our match funding pot is used to double donations made whilst the Christmas Challenge is on.
Here is a very short video about how the Christmas Challenge works:
Our pledges made in the summer of 2020, helped make our Christmas Challenge last year very successful. They helped us qualify to take part, as well as secure £1,500 in funding from The Reed Foundation – one of the Big Give’s ‘Champions’.
By being one of our pledgers, you will:
- Support the very exciting and transformative programme of work we are fundraising for
- Encourage others to donate during the Christmas Challenge campaign (research shows that 84% of donors are more likely to give in a match funding campaign and that donations are on average 2.5 times bigger) and
- Make your own gift go much further
If you would like to make a pledge to us, you can do so by clicking ‘PLEDGE NOW’ below and completing the online form by the deadline of 11:59pm, Sunday 5th September 2021.
Thank you again for your continued interest and support, we could not do the work we do to improve the lives of young people without you. 💜
