Empire Fighting Chance are delighted to announce we are one of the chosen charities for the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2020. The event is an online fundraising activity where every donation, up to £10,000, made to the charity via the Big Give website between 1st-8th December will be doubled. That means that we have an incredible opportunity to raise £20,000!
What is the Big Give?
The Big Give runs the UK’s biggest match funding campaign, The Christmas Challenge. For seven days, it offers supporters of participating charities the opportunity to have their donation doubled. Founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Alec Reed CBE, the Christmas Challenge has raised millions of pounds for thousands of charity projects since it launched on the Big Give in 2008. This year the Dulverton Trust has chosen to donate £10,000 of match funding to Empire Fighting Chance.

How your support helps
We know that this year has been incredibly tough for individuals, businesses, and families across the country. As a charity that supports disadvantaged young people, we see first-hand the devastating effect the last few months have had on our young people and their families.
The demand for our service is increasing and the young people that come to us are facing the perfect storm of poverty, mental health issues reduced access to education and an uncertain future.
Our work has never been so important, and we couldn’t do this without our supporters. Every penny donated this Christmas will make a huge impact on our ability to continue transforming the lives of young people. Even if you aren’t able to donate please do share our messages and help spread the word so our young people know that whatever the future holds Empire Fighting Chance will there to provide support and a safe space to help them turn their lives around.
