CWNN are taking part in The Big Give #ChristmasChallenge21 where for one week only donations will be DOUBLED! You heard us right, one donation will have TWICE the impact for our wonderful, supportive choir communities.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge begins at midday on 30th November and will close at midday on the 7th December. Any donations made via our Big Give page during this time will be matched by the campaign, meaning your donation would be doubled. Plus, you can still add gift aid to the original donation amount! How's that for making the most out of your money?!
Our vision is that all people going through tough times find a place to sing their hearts out, beat loneliness, and build confidence and skills through singing. We address the most common reasons someone might find it difficult to move on from homelessness, such as social isolation, low confidence and lack of skills for work and life.
"The Choir with No Name has felt more like a family to me than ever and has helped me to get through and not feel alone and overwhelmed by everything that has been happening."
So, if you were keen to spread some Christmassy joy to our choirs via a donation, it would be fantastic if you could do so during the challenge! Here's how your donation could look:
- £10.00 donation (+ £2.50 gift aid) would become £22.50. This could provide a hot dinner after rehearsal for 15 choir members
- £20.00 donation (+ £5.00 gift aid) would become £45.00. This could pay for one of our brilliant accompanists to provide the musical magic at a rehearsal
- £50.00 donation (+ £12.50 gift aid) would become £112.50. This could pay for one of our choir directors to host an outreach singing workshop to introduce people at risk of homelessness to the power of singing together
The Big Give will match up to £3000 during this campaign, which could mean a total of £6000 to support our choirs. We would be over the moon if you could help us reach this target! We want to be there for people going through a tough time, so that they have the support and a safe, welcoming, inclusive community they need to get back on their feet.
"Since being in the choir I’ve managed to get through a difficult part of my life and now I feel able to say to others ‘this is what you can do, because this is what worked for me." Steve, Bimingham
