HEAD2HEAD SENSORY THEATRE ANNOUNCES THE BIG GIVE CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE 2021 TO BOOST FUNDS

DECK THE HALLS WITH DOUBLE DONATIONS

Volunteer-led charity, Head2Head Sensory Theatre, is partnering with The Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign this Christmas with the hope to raise £12,000. If you give between 30 November and 7 December 2021, The Big Give Christmas Challenge will give Head2Head supporters the opportunity to have their donations doubled.

The matching pots used to double donations are made up of a combination of funds. These are funds sourced by the charity (‘Pledges’) and funds sourced by the Big Give (‘Champions’). This collective pot is used to double donations from online supporters when the campaign is live.

“A heartfelt thank you goes out to our champions, a dedicated supporter of Head2Head and the Four Acre Trust, who have given us £6,000 in the ‘pledge pot’ this year says founder Anni Steere-Rhodes, “however, we can only access this pot of money if we can raise £6,000 in donations online during this week to reach our target of £12,000.

“The funds we raise during The Big Give Christmas Challenge will not only help us continue our ground-breaking work making theatre accessible for everyone but will also help propel us into 2022 when we hope to finally move to our new base in Oxted to start a new chapter for the team at Head2Head. It’s a no brainer, every donation can be doubled, so if you are considering making a donation to us this Christmas, please do it during Big Give Week.”

Donations are open from 12pm on 30th November #GivingTuesday. Any donations made from then for 7 days will be matched. https://donate.thebiggive.org.uk/campaign/a056900001wWgQeAAK

What is the Christmas Challenge? The Christmas Challenge helps UK-registered charities to raise funds for their projects by doubling donations when the campaign goes live on November 30th 2021. You can find full details of the Christmas Challenge, and how your pledge will enable us to be part of the UK’s largest Matched Funding Challenge, on theBigGive.org.uk. Research shows that 84% of donors are more likely to give in a match funding campaign and that donations are on average 2.5 times bigger so we’re very excited about the opportunity to take part.

How does it work?

· The matching pots used to double donations for charities taking part in the Christmas Challenge are made up of a combination of funds. These are funds sourced by the charity (‘Pledges’) and funds sourced by the Big Give (‘Champions’) which are available if we are successfully selected by a Champion.

· The timeline for fulfilling the pledge (i.e. transferring the funds to us) is 8th December 2021 – 15th January 2022.
