No, it’s not a wedding, it’s more exciting than that, we’ve got a place on The Big Gives Christmas Challenge. Disappointingly, it’s not about how much turkey and stuffing one can eat. Although based on the amount of cake we eat we would be the clear winners! What it is about, is raising funds for our charity and here’s how it works.
The Christmas Challenge is a match funding campaign where donations to participating charities are doubled. The match funds come from two sources – charities secure some of these (Pledges) over the summer. These funds are then boosted by funds from a Big Give Champion who contributes to the match fund. This collective pot is used to double donations from online supporters when the campaign is live.
We are very fortunate to have a very generous donor who has pledged £1500 to the campaign. This has been matched by our Big Give Champion the Monday Charitable Trust, this gives us the potential to raise £6000 for Vision of Adventure and the work we do.
So, the dates to save are between 1st December 2020 and 8th December 2020 (midnight to midnight). Between these dates any donations made will be doubled by the funds donated by our pledger and the Monday Charitable Trust.
So, if you’re thinking about donating please hang on to it until December and you can double your money!
We’ll let you know when the website is open for donations.
