This year we are delighted to have been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017, the UK’s largest match funding campaign – donations to Surviving Winter will be matched for 7 days from 12pm on 28th November.
BCF is asking local people who do not need their winter fuel allowance to donate it. Even if you don’t receive a winter fuel payment, you can still make a donation of any size. It is a simple, compassionate and generous gift that really could transform people’s lives, enabling them to stay warm and healthy over Christmas and throughout winter. Donations will be used to fund projects in Berkshire to support adults and children most in need of help, making sure they can afford to stay warm, eat well, and stay healthy throughout the winter.
Why donate to the BCF Surviving Winter Fund?
During the cold winter months, many local people have to choose between heating their home, putting food on the table or buying their children a suitable winter coat. These incredibly difficult decisions are common for so many people and BCF aims to raise £10k to support people experiencing fuel poverty.
What happens during the Christmas Challenge?
Donations made to our project via theBigGive.org.uk will be doubled during the campaign. If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend doing so during the Christmas Challenge when your donation will be doubled and make even more of a difference to us.
Support can be given in the following ways:
- Donate Online between 12pm on 28th November and 12pm on 5th December.
- Share our appeal – Can you help us to spread the word and let your friends, family and work colleagues know about Surviving Winter? Join us on Facebook and Twitter and share our news with your friends and followers.
Thank you for your support.
