WE ARE LIVE NOW and for seven days all on-line donations to Jigsaw (South East) child bereavement charity via the The Big Give Christmas Challenge will be DOUBLED. We aim to achieve at least £3,000 in donations, by the end of the campaign. This will increase to £6000 as The Four Acre Trust – a champion – and some of our key supporters have pledged to match it.
You can donate HERE and your donation will be doubled.
All the money generated in the week will be channelled into our 2020 Grief Support groups for young people who have lost a loved one. These are six-week sessions, which help families by opening up communication and providing coping strategies going forward.
Teenagers Hannah Romaine, from Reigate and Molly Humphreys, from Horley, are Young Ambassadors for Jigsaw (South East). They both attended Support Groups after the deaths of their Fathers, when they were 9 and 10 years old respectively. They say:
“The groups helped us to realise we weren’t the only children going through a bereavement at that time. The support they gave to our families was brilliant and we wouldn’t be the families we are today without Jigsaw.”
Carolyn Steer, the Business Development Manager for Jigsaw (South East) says:
“We‘re excited to be part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge for the third year. We’re a small charity and we rely on donations and grants to support our work.
“We’re extremely grateful for all contributions, whatever the amount, and if you would like to support us, please do so on-line at the Big Give website during the Christmas Challenge, when your generosity will be doubled and make even more of a difference to grieving families.”
To double your donation, click HERE (or go to the Big Give website), press the DONATE button and enter the amount you want to give. Do this anytime between midday on Tuesday 3rd December to 12pm (midday) on Tuesday 10th December 2019. If you donate £5 and add Gift Aid, Jigsaw (South East) will actually receive £11.25.
