News News The Big Give Christmas Challenge Whilst Christmas is a time of celebration for so many, for a number of our beneficiaries it can be a very difficult time of year, which will be amplified even further this year due to the hugely detrimental impact Covid is having on those in need in the region. New for 2020, Children North East is applying to take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, to hopefully raise vital funds for our Hope for Christmas appeal. As part of our application, we need businesses to make a promise of funding, called ‘Pledges’, which will be used as match funds to double online donations made to our charity during the campaign. Your commitment of funding might also help us to secure additional match funds via a Champion (sourced by the Big Give). We are aiming to raise a total of £1,000 in pledges to take part in the Christmas Challenge. Would you consider making a pledge to help us reach our target? If you would be willing to make a pledge to us, you can do so by clicking the pledge button below by the deadline of 5pm, Friday 4 September. Make your pledge! If you would be interested in getting involved in our Christmas Appeal in other ways outside of the Big Give, we’d love to discuss this with you. We have a number of ideas we’ll be sharing as we get closer to the festive season and would love your involvement in whichever way would work best for you.
