With normal fundraising activities affected by Covid-19, MacIntyre, a national charity providing education, support, and care for over 1,200 people with learning disabilities and/or autism, are taking part in the 2020 Big Give Christmas Challenge.
The Big Give is a national matched-giving campaign to raise funds from 1 to 8 December.
How it works: 1. We secure pledges of £1,000 – done! 2. We secure a Charity Champion who also pledges £1,000 – done! 3. We aim to raise £2,000 to release these pledges, giving a total of £4,000.
What's next? Could you help us raise £2,000 to help the people we support to access digital devices to keep in touch with loved ones?
During the Christmas Challenge Week 1-8 December, all donations made to MacIntyre will be matched. One donation doubles the impact on the people we support.
We have lined up some fantastic, festive fundraising fun for everyone, kicking off on #GivingTuesday, 1 December. Our virtual events include a Christmas Fair, a corporate networking meeting, a Gameathon and a Christmas Concert
Lorraine Devereux, Events and Corporate Fundraiser said: “We feel passionately that we want to be able to bring the opportunity to use technology, to connect and to learn to even more people we support at MacIntyre. Imagine being able to play a part in making that happen, in bringing that opportunity to someone with a learning disability. You can help us make that happen by supporting us in the Big Give Christmas Challenge”.
