Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018 One donation, twice the impact

Bendrigg Trust Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018

Tue 27th Nov – Tue 4th Dec 2018

Bendrigg is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge – the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign which helps UK-registered charities to raise funds for their projects by doubling donations when the campaign goes live at 12noon on ‘#GivingTuesday’ (27th November).

How does it work?
Donations made to Bendrigg via the Big Give website during the Christmas Challenge will be ‘matched’ using the funds pledged by our regular supporters and a Big Give Christmas Champion. So if you donate £50, we will receive £100.

Bendrigg has secured £5,000 of ‘pledged match-funding’ as part of the campaign. To receive this pledged funding we must raise £5,000 in donations during the campaign week.

What are we raising funds for?
We’re raising vital funds for our ‘Driving for Change’ project to replace our ageing accessible car with a new and larger accessible vehicle capable of transporting more wheelchair users. The current accessible car is over 12 years old and maintenance costs are increasing. A new vehicle will not only increase our capacity and flexibility but also decrease our maintenance costs and improve vehicle reliability. The new vehicle will cost around £30,000 and we hope to raise £10,000 from this campaign.

What can I do?
Set a reminder – Add 12noon on Tuesday 27th November to your diary to remind yourself to donate.

Donate! – Donations need to be made online via our Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign page between 12pm Tuesday 27th November and 12pm Tuesday 4th December to be doubled.

Share – Share the campaign with your friends, family and colleagues. If possible, let them know about it now and then remind them on the 27th November – every penny counts.
