The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2020

Update: We Did It!

We hit our target and raised £7,440 with The Big Give Christmas Challenge!

Thank you so much to everyone that pledged and donated to the appeal during the busy week. Your generosity means so much!

Your donation doubled this Christmas. From 1st-8th December, we’re taking part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Donate and have your donation doubled here:

Please note: Donations are only match-funded from 1st-8th December when donated at

Any donation you make from 1st-8th December 2020 will be matched by The Big Give Champions and some generous supporters.

That means your donation will be doubled this Christmas.

All funds raised will go straight to our front-line Advice Service, giving practical advice and support to refugees and asylum seekers during the COVID-19 crisis.

This year we’ve seen a huge increase of families and individuals in crisis and desperate for support.

Families who’ve lost work and can’t afford to buy food. People made homeless because they’ve missed rent payments. People suffering from mental illness after two gruelling lockdowns. Hundreds of asylum seekers being kept in hotels have needed help.

We have expanded our service and worked round the clock to try and cope with the increased demand. We don’t receive any more funding, and that’s why we need your help to continue providing front-line support for refugees in Berkshire.

One donation, twice the impact.

Double Your Impact

Your donations will be double during The Christmas Challenge thanks to The Big Give, Monday Charitable Trust and some generous supporters!

That means one donation does twice the good.

£15 pays for around 60 mins of support, enough time to talk to someone in crisis

£30 pays for 2 hours of support, enough to properly support a person in crisis.

£100 pays for a whole day of support, enough to help support multiple people in need

It’s easy to be twice as nice this Christmas with The Big Give’s Christmas Challenge.
