SHS are delighted to announce that we will be taking part in The Big Give 2016 Christmas Challenge 2016, and we need your support to help us reach our target!
The Big Give is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign. Their 2016 Christmas Challenge launches at 12 noon on Tuesday 29th November and closes 12 noon on Friday 2nd December. If you donate to SHS through The Big Give website during this period, your donation will be matched. So every penny that you donate during this period will have twice the impact!
With match funding, we are aiming to raise £20,000 for the SHS Welfare Fund which provides basic items in times of desperate need to families living in extreme poverty. A donation of £15, for example, could provide school shoes for a child whose family are unable to afford them. £100 could pay for a complete set of school uniforms and PE kit for a child. It is a vital tool for our practitioners, opening the door for them to work with children and families most in need of support.
We would like to thank our friends and supporters, The Pilgrim Trust, for their offer to match the funds raised during The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2016.
