A global day of giving

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. It is an opportunity to come together and give something back.

2017 was the fourth year that local businesses and members of the public came together to support us and our community. In 2017 our #GivingTuesday campaign raised funds for our Surviving Winter campaign.

Surviving Winter

The ‘Surviving Winter’ campaign offers people like you the opportunity to support some of the most disadvantaged people as the cold nights draw in. As heating bills are ever increasing, it can be difficult for some people, especially the elderly, to stay warm and safe within their own homes, and difficulties may be faced with saving enough money for food and other necessities.

Many of the people who need help are often isolated socially; without the help from friends or family, it is vital that these people can receive the support they so desperately need and deserve.

Our Surviving Winter Campaign is still available through our Big Give page if you wish to make donations.

In the past year we have had some wonderful organisations and people taking part in #GivingTuesday in their workplace, or getting involved as an individual helping us to raise money for our Surviving Winter Campaign!
