In under 30 hours, supporters broke through our target and raised a huge £54,388 as part of the match-funded, donation-doubling Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Year after year, we are overwhelmed by the generosity and sacrificial giving of our supporters. This year’s Big Give campaign launched at midday Tuesday 28th November and, seemingly in the blink of an eye, by the evening of Wednesday 29th, we had reached our target of £50,000!

Tiffany Sloan, Bethany’s Individual Giving Team Lead was blown away by this extraordinary giving:

A great big thank you! We are so encouraged by how quickly our supporters responded to the Big Give campaign. You helped us reach our match giving goal in under 30 hours! Because of you, many individuals who are facing homelessness can access somewhere safe to stay this festive period whilst we support them to find more permanent accommodation.

Thank you so much for your generous support, and also a big thank you to The Mackie Foundation and our anonymous donor for matching your donations.

If you would still like to donate towards Buy a Bed, the campaign will keep on running until the 15th of January as we raise funds for the rest of the Winter season.

Thank you again for your support and wishing you a Merry Christmas when it comes!

Bethany’s Individual Giving Team Lead, Tiffany Sloan

With this gift, we are ever closer to our fundraising target for Buy a Bed, and invite you to join us in spreading the word. The need this Winter has been great, with an increase in the number of people presenting at the Welcome Centre for emergency accommodation and support. It is vital that we do more together to support people in crisis.
