Wow, together we reached our target of £10,000 for our ‘Surviving Winter’ Appeal. With your support, we can help local groups and charities protect those people who are most vulnerable to eat well, keep warm and be more mobile so they can live as comfortably as possible in the coming months.
Many of the people who need help are often isolated socially; without the help from friends or family, it is vital that these people can receive the support they so desperately need and deserve.
This year we were lucky enough to be chosen to take part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge that launched on #givingtuesday!
The Christmas Challenge is the UK’s largest online match funding campaign. Donors were invited to give online through our ‘Big Give’ page to ensure their donation is doubled.
