The Big Give is the UK’s biggest match-funding campaign, which helps charities raise funds for their cause.
It offers supporters of participating charities the opportunity to have their donation doubled on theBigGive.org.uk when the campaign goes live on #GivingTuesday, 28th November 2017, and YMCA Mendip need your help.
In order for YMCA Mendip to be eligible to take part, they need to secure pledges amounting to the target amount of £1,200, before any donations can be match-funded. The funds will be used to provide vulnerable and homeless people with a £5 hot meal voucher and Christmas meal across their supported housing projects in Wells, Shepton Mallet, Frome, Street and Yeovil.
YMCA Mendip provide a warm and welcoming environment where young people can feel safe, have positive role models to talk to and receive the support they need to help them move on towards positive independent living.
It isn’t just at Christmas that YMCA Mendip support vulnerable people in our community, the year-round £5 food voucher scheme provides a hot meal for people who, for a variety of reasons including changes to benefits, have little or no money and are at risk of ill-health and homelessness.
Help continue this important work with young people and make your pledge in support of YMCA Mendip, all pledges must be made before 5pm on Friday 1st September 2017. The minimum donation to qualify for the Big Give campaign is £100.
