The Big Give Christmas Challenge: help care leavers achieve their hopes and dreams!
Posted 30th November 2021
This year The National House Project will take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge Campaign to help care leavers achieve their hopes and dreams.
From Tuesday 30th November to Tuesday 7th December the Charity will seek donations which will be matched funded by the Big Give. All donations will go towards funding our ’Aspirational Awards’ programme where the Charity will support care leavers towards achieving a lifelong wish or dream that will help them succeed in life. This might mean a helping hand towards an overseas volunteering trip, specialist sports equipment or the opportunity to train for their dream job.
Mark Warr, CEO of The National House Project said “We are excited about joining in the Big Give this Christmas, we hope that people can get behind our cause and will help support young people leaving the care system who can’t rely on the bank of mum and dad. Our Aspirational Awards Programme supports our care leavers to achieve even more!”
Anyone wanting to give as part of the campaign can donate at The National House Project (thebiggive.org.uk). To find out more about the Big Give go to The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021 Campaign Video (#ChristmasChallenge21) - YouTube
