The Big Give Christmas Challenge

Help us take part in the Christmas Challenge to raise £2,500 in one week!

We are taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, and we’re thrilled to have been chosen for matched funding for up to £2,500. This means any donations to the charity during the campaign week will be doubled – one donation but twice the impact!

The Big Give is a charity and the UK’s #1 match funding platform. They bring charities, philanthropists, and the public together to multiply the impact of thousands of great causes through the power of match funding.

We need to raise a minimum of £2,500 through online donations during the campaign week. If we meet this target during the campaign week, these funds will be matched, raising a total of £5000! The match funding week is 28th November to 5th December and donations are collected online.

Tuesday 28th November to Tuesday 5th December – starting at 12pm (midday) on #GivingTuesday

When donating to Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm, your donations need to be paid here.

One donation – twice the impact

Every pound donated during this week will be doubled by match funding, so there’s no better time to show your support!

The campaign is a great opportunity for us to raise some additional funds. All money raised throughout the campaign will help us to purchase new general activity equipment for the centre, and help to maintain a safe, warm, and nurturing environment for the children of Leeds.

Jenny Jones, Fundraising Manager at Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm:

“We’re taking part in the Christmas Challenge with the aim of delivering twice the impact from our festive fundraising efforts. To access the £2,500 we have in the matching pot, we need to raise £2,500 in online donations. We know that many of our wonderful supporters give generously at this time of year, and we hope everyone will help us reach our target!”

About the Christmas Challenge

Big Give runs the UK’s biggest match funding campaign, the Christmas Challenge. For seven days, it offers supporters of participating charities the opportunity to have their donations doubled.

The match funds come from two sources – secured pledges from charity supporters which are then boosted by a Big Give Champion who contributes to the final match fund pot. The collective pot is used to double donations from online supporters when the campaign is live.
