Big Give Christmas Challenge target smashed!

And that’s a wrap! A massive thank you to everyone who helped us smash our Big Give #ChristmasChallenge22 target of £34,000.

Your support helped us raise an incredible £52,085 (including gift aid and offline donations) in just a week!

Funds raised will go towards our Training into Work programme in Zambia. Our training supports disadvantaged young people to work their way out of poverty through practical trades skills, strengthened life-skills and real work experience.

Lisa Carson, Build It Head of Fundraising and Communications shared the news:

“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone who has donated to this year’s campaign, and we really cannot thank you enough!

This amazing total will go such a long way towards helping to change the lives of young, disadvantaged youth in Zambia. Our heartfelt thanks go out to you all.”

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest match-funded campaign. This year it ran from 29 November 2022 to 6 December 2022.

81,275 donations were made to the 1,021 charities taking part, helping to raise an incredible £28.6M!
