Our mission is to help each child succeed, regardless of their circumstances, by giving them the opportunities and support they need to thrive. In order to do this, we depend on the generosity of individuals and organisations to support and sustain our work. Personal donations made this week (by 5pm on June 5th), will be matched by the Childhood Trust if made on The Winch’s section of the Big Give ‘s website.
The Childhood Trust Summer Give is a new match funding initiative run in partnership with the Big Give, which aims to fund project supporting London children during school holidays. We have already raised £10,000 in pledges from supporters. Our goal is to raise an additional £20,000 during this week’s online giving phase. This, in addition to the pledges from supporters and the contribution from the Childhood Trust, will combine to equal our total target of £40,000. This funding will be used to fund our summer play scheme. Up to 60 local children attend every day, and over 100 different children participate throughout the course of the summer. Children who attend the play scheme participate in a range of different activities including sport, arts and crafts, and day trips. The funding will be used to pay for trips, staff and additional activities that would not be possible without funding. It also allows us to provide targeted one-to-one support to those who need It over the Summer. Please visit here to find out more and donate.
