£22,600 raised through Champions for Children!

A huge thank you to everyone who donated to WLAC over the Champions for Children campaign week. We well and truly hit our target and raised over £22,600, all of which will go towards supporting local families and children in need during Covid-19.

Also a big thank you to The Childhood Trust and our pledge givers, whose kind generosity meant that donations made via the Champions for Children match funding campaign were doubled!

Big Give Match Funding during Covid-19

23rd – 30th June 2020
Help us to hit our target of £20,000

We are delighted to announce that The Big Give and The Childhood Trust have teamed up to organise Champions for Children – a match-funding campaign to support charities in raising much-needed funds during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The funding offers you the opportunity to double your donation to WLAC, at no extra cost to you, helping us to continue providing our vital services to those most in need at this unprecedented time.

What do you need to do:

The match-funding opportunity goes live on Tuesday 23rd June, for one week only, so make a note in your diary.  We will be publishing the direct link to our WLAC Big Give Donation page closer to the time here on our website, on all of our social media platforms, as well as emailing our supporters, so keep your eyes peeled.

In the meantime, get your thinking caps on because we’d like you to log on to social media during the Champions for Children week, and tell us who has been your #LockdownChampion and why.

Could it be…

Your partner for bringing you that much needed cup of tea when your computer crashed yet again?

Your children for being so brave, kind and mighty at such a difficult time?

Your best friend for making you laugh just when you needed it most?

Your family for making your lockdown birthday one to remember?

Your neighbour for bringing round the Tesco essentials?

Everyday acts of kindness are all the more important in these difficult times, and we’d like to celebrate each and every #LockdownChampion
