The Big Give Christmas Challenge


CLICK HERE to support The Winch in the Big Give Christmas Challenge

This year we have entered the Big Give Christmas Challenge to fund our summer activities for next year. As the UK’s biggest match funding event, the Big Give is an exciting opportunity for us and our supporters to have their donations doubled- so that every donation makes twice the impact.

Our summer Playscheme and activities for young people mean that children can access the support and opportunities they deserve all year round. This year over 60 children attended our Playscheme every day, where they were able to spend the day making, playing, learning, getting messy, going on trips and in the care of our fantastic team of dedicated Play Workers.

We have made sure that our Playscheme is affordable for every parent and provide free places where they are needed. This means that every parent can access the best childcare and opportunities for their child over the summer- so that they can go to work and their children can spend the day in a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment.

Our youth activities and trips provide a much needed break for young people who might struggle to get out of their local area in the holidays. This year The Winch Youth Team provided over 100 places on trips, including opportunities to climb, ice skate, visit the revamped Dreamland in Margate, spend a day on the beach in Camber Sands and go to Thorpe Park. For some young people these were the only times that they were able to take a break from pressures such as those within school, chaotic home environments and gangs.

Important questions!

When is the Big Give?: The Big Give Christmas Challenge runs from Tuesday 28th November (#GivingTuesday) at 12:00 and runs until 12:00 on Tuesday 5th December.

How much is The Winch raising?: We have a target of £10,600 to fund our summer activities- but we can go over our target!

What is match funding?: Match funding means that every donation that we receive before we hit our target will be matched by a Winch Champion or by the Childhood Trust- so that when you donate £20.00, they donate £20.00 and we receive £40.00
