Big Give Christmas Challenge Target Reached!

In News by Kate Boughton

We’re thrilled to have raised an amazing £25,000 for our Big Give Christmas Challenge appeal, Not Lonely this Christmas!

The Big Give is the UK’s largest match-funding campaign. Donations made online during the Christmas Challenge week were doubled by a pledge pot, meaning that every donation made had twice the impact. The money raised will fund activities and courses which help people with learning disabilities in Nottinghamshire to build their confidence, make new friends and feel part of their community.

We held a number of events and open-house sessions throughout the Christmas Challenge week which raised awareness and funds for our appeal.  These included the Reach Newark Christmas Fair, the Reach Mansfield Charity Christmas Auction, and Reach Southwell and Flower Pod taking part in the Southwell Traders’ Late Night Shopping event.  Funds raised through these events and others, plus a high number of individual donations meant that we reached our £25,000 target before the midday deadline on 5th December.

A huge thank you to all who donated to and supported the Big Give Christmas Challenge!
