Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells & District will be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2020 which launches on Tuesday, 1st December. We are looking to raise £5000 to support our new debt advice team and the delivery of an additional 250 hours of advice to those in Tunbridge Wells who are facing financial difficulty following the pandemic.
Although we are affiliated to the national Citizens Advice charity, Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells & District is an independent charity and we need to raise all of our own funding locally. Help us to reach our fundraising target and provide 250 hours of free and impartial advice.
The Big Give – how it works
All donations made during the Big Give will be match funded – so one donation has double the impact. We can also claim Gift Aid on eligible donations meaning that for every £100 raised we could receive £225. In order to reach our target of £5000 we will need to raise £2500 in online donations between midday on Tuesday 1st December and midday on Tuesday 8th December.
The minimum donation is just £1 and the money raised will enable us to:
- Recruit and train new volunteers
- Increase the hours of paid staff to mentor volunteers
- Support our team of specialist debt advisers
