Big names have joined forces with Lewis-Manning Hospice Care to endorse their bid to receive support from The Big Give Christmas Challenge Appeal; TV presenter Fearne Cotton, actress Emilia Fox, Hospice Patron Harry and Sandra Redknapp and Former AFC Bournemouth Chairman Jeff Mostyn, and have all produced brief video messages to encourage the public to come on board and pledge their support for the Challenge doubling their donation, raising vital funds for the Lewis-Manning Family Support & Bereavement Service.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge runs from 28th November – 5th December and has the strapline, ‘one donation, twice the impact’, as all donations are matched funded!’
For seven days the Challenge will offer supporters of participating charities the opportunity to double their donations. The match funding for the campaign is being provided by a number of philanthropic champions. With over 1,000 charities taking part, Big Give’s Christmas Challenge supports a vast range of causes, many of which are directly working on issues impacted by the cost of living crisis, including food poverty, homelessness and mental health.
Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is taking part to raise funds to help people, local people who are struggling to come to terms with a life-limiting diagnosis or cope with a bereavement.
Director of Fundraising, Tom Goodinge advised, “We are hugely grateful to Fearne, Emilia Harry, Sandra and Jeff, offering their time to produce these videos and support this fundraising initiative. All funds raised will support our Family Support and Bereavement Service this festive season. Donate to Lewis-Manning Hospice Care before the 5th December at: https://donate.biggive.org/campaign/a056900002RXtd0AAD your donation will be automatically doubled, a wonderful opportunity for the hospice!”
