Our supporters raise an amazing £21,760 through the Big Give Christmas Challenge

News article from December 8, 2016

Thanks to all our wonderful supporters, we have managed to beat our target of £20,000 for The Big Give Christmas Challenge!

In just a 7-day period between Tuesday 29th November and Tuesday 6th December, your donations have helped us to raise £21,760 including matched funding for the SHS Welfare Fund.

The SHS Welfare Fund provides essential items to some of the poorest families we work with in times of desperate need.

“I just wanted to start by saying how grateful the children and myself are for the help we have received from the SHS Welfare Fund. We have been truly blessed with what we have been given and thank them and yourself for working so hard for us and fighting our corner. Once again words can’t describe how grateful I am but thank you again for all your hard work.”

An email from Tracy, a mother supported by the SHS Welfare Fund.

We would like to thank everyone that got involved and supported SHS in  The Big Give Christmas Challenge. We were blown away by the support we received, and raising over £20,000 in just one week is an amazing success.

We would also like to thank our friends and supporters The Pilgrim Trust, who generously doubled every donation we received during The Big Give Christmas Challenge to reach this fantastic total.
