Big Give Christmas Challenge!

31 October 2023

We are holding our first ever Big Give Christmas Challenge between midday 28 November to midday 5 December.

Our music sessions provide a strong therapeutic and sensory experience for our students with learning disabilities – but our resources are limited and in need of updating. With your help, we can purchase a range of new, specialist equipment which will make our sessions more accessible and increase the creative opportunities we can offer, including the ability to record music.

So, what is the Big Give Christmas Challenge? It is the UK’s biggest match-funded campaign where, for seven days, our supporters' donations are match funded and doubled! One donation, twice the impact.

This is our first year doing the Big Give Christmas Challenge with a campaign goal of £2,000. If we hit our target, this will be match funded to a staggering £4,000!
