The Big Give Christmas Challenge for 2019 has now ended! To donate to Honeypot, please click here instead.
This Christmas we’re taking part in the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge 2019! Generous charitable trusts will be matchfunding any donations made through the Big Give website to Honeypot, letting your donation go twice as far for one week only! You can support twice as many young carers, at no extra cost to you!
We’re targeting £20,000, which means we have to raise only £10,000 in one week and one week only from Tuesday 3rd December midday to the 10th of December.
Just think of the good that money could do for young carers.
Raising £2,000 could help make Christmas special for 24 young carers. They’d get to come on a festive party on our Christmas Roadshow and take home prizes and their own present, sometimes the only one they may receive.
Raising £12,000 could cover 3 weekend respite breaks across the festive period for 28 young carers. This’ll give these children a merry break from difficult responsibilities at home, with kids able to play and take part in sports, arts and crafts and swimming, with trips to the panto or Christmas parties.
Raising £20,000 could pay for a full year of support for 36 children, covering their first respite break at Honeypot House, outreach support for Christmas presents and their birthday card.
