How you can help us Fundraise Big Give 2019 Pledges We know it's the middle of summer but we're thinking about this year's Big Give Christmas Challenge already! We're aiming to raise £10,000 towards Young Carers social activities. To do this we first need to secure £2500 in pledges. A young carer is a person aged between 5yrs-17yrs who takes on responsibility for helping to look after a family member who has a long-term illness, mental health condition or disability. We will be raising money to provide Young Carers with social activities and opportunities to have time away from caring to have some fun! By becoming a Pledger you are committing to provide match funds which can be quadrupled following donations made to the charity during the campaign. You can pledge as little as £100 and if you're a UK tax payer, Gift Aid can also be added. The deadline for us to collect pledges is 5pm on 30th August. These will be matched by a Champion of the Big Give and this total used to match fund what we raise during the Christmas Challenge towards the end of the month. Pledge target of £2500 + Champions match funds of £2500 = £5000 pot of funds to match Christmas Challenge donations +£5000 Christmas Challenge donations = £10,000 raised for Young Carer Activities To make a pledge or to learn more, click on the button below.
