Target smashed - over £30,000 raised

< Back to listing

Thank you to everyone who has supported our '12 days of Christmas' appeal.  We have been overwhelmed and hugely encouraged by the generosity of so many.

Our original target was £12,000:£1,000 for each day of the appeal.  It soon became apparent that we were going to exceed this. By day 6, halfway through the appeal we had raised over £8,000 – we knew at this point we needed to find additional pledges!

Such has been the success of this appeal that we will certainly consider making it an annual event.  We are really interested to  know what has ‘appealed’ to you, all feedback gratefully received, please contact us

Thanks to the generosity of so many (over 160 separate donations), we have raised just over £36,000 in total (including the match fund and Gift Aid) and we will be able to support over 150 young people with the money raised.
