The Big Give Christmas Challenge

What a response!

​We knew you were brilliant but your support for the Big Give Christmas Challenge this year has been phenomenal. A huge thank you to everyone who donated and shared our campaign as well as to our pledgers and Big Give champion. Without these benevolent people, our campaign could not happen. 

In just one week, you helped us raise a fantastic £27,264.01 including Gift Aid and offline donations, you are truly amazing!!

​All funds raised will help build a community for our members and their families through a series of bespoke events where families meet others in the same position and gain support from each other. These will include counselling, wellness sessions and peer support groups, as well as fun social events for children and young people living with a rare genetic condition.
