Unexpected Christmas donation smashes crowdfunding target

Date: 03 Jan 2024

Following the success of our summer crowdfunding campaign, which was match-funded by The Childhood Trust, we decided to run another campaign around Christmas time.

We wanted to raise £20,000 from the general public that would then be matched pound-for-pound by a private donor and The Childhood Trust. We felt apprehensive but were excited by the challenge.

However, before we could launch this fundraiser, CharityJob and Delatim Ltd swooped in and donated over £20,000 collectively, meaning we reached our target with just two donors! We were surprised and hugely thankful. This left us able to focus on making Christmas special for an additional 200 families while also supporting our existing clients.

Our vital work depends on donations like these and we send heartfelt thanks to all the organisations who supported us and to The Big Give who provide the platform to run these groundbreaking campaigns. We have started the year on a (very big) high and can’t wait to see what the rest of 2024 brings!
