“The Big Give Week”

We were delighted to be part of The Big Give Christmas Challenge this year for the first time. The Big Give week is an exciting way for our supporters to make a Christmas donation which is then  DOUBLED  by an external sponsor fund and some wonderful supporters of ours who kick started this campaign with some very generous pledges. An enormous thank you goes to the seven supporters who made our participation in the week possible.

As many of you will have found out, the Big Give week got off to a very rocky start with technical problems on their site. We know that this prevented many from donating and we can only apologise profusely for time and energy that was wasted on this. It must have been incredibly frustrating. We are taking this up with the Big Give directly to reassure ourselves that it won’t happen again if we decide to take part next year.

On the very positive side, we hit our target by Wednesday thanks to your speed and generosity and we were thrilled to exceed our target by the end of the week. To those of you who were lucky enough to have got your donation accepted, thank you so much. We know it took many of you several attempts and are just extremely grateful for your tenacity to keep going!

In the end we raised a magnificent total of £6,905. This will ensure that 16 children in Yelatma orphanage will receive daily Portage sessions for the next year. This is an incredible gift to give them – life changing in fact.

If you didn’t manage to donate last week, but would like to make a donation, our Big Give page is still open for donations.  Just follow this link.

Once again, a huge thank you for your wonderful support We’re incredibly grateful.
