Thank you to everyone who donated to our Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign, your generous support means that we have raised an incredible £59,436 including Gift Aid! Whether you donated £10 or £10,000 we are very grateful. The money raised will mean that more vulnerable children can get sustained, personalised support within school from an Eikon Charity practitioner – before their challenges become potentially life-changing problems.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge is an annual week-long match funding campaign, where donations made to a charity’s fundraising campaign can be doubled. For The Big Give 2021, The Eikon Charity set an overall fundraising target of £50,000, and thanks to you we have exceeded that.
Our Big Give campaign focused on supporting vulnerable school children as Covid has hit children’s mental health hard. In every classroom there are young people who are struggling – with depression, anxiety, or abuse. Without support their emotional wellbeing often deteriorates. Some are self-harming or having suicidal thoughts. Donations made to our campaign will enable us to place specialist youth workers in schools to give children the help they need.
We can’t wait for the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022!
