The Big Give Christmas Challenge – Save the Date

We’re very excited to let you know that Penhaligon’s Friends has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. Last year, thanks to generous supporters like you the campaign raised over £13 million for participating charities.

We will be raising money to support 4 Memory Days for bereaved children, young people and their families in Cornwall.

Donations to this project will be matched for 7 days from 12pm on 3rd December, #GivingTuesday. One donation, twice the impact. There will be a link on our website nearer the time, but in the meantime, Save the Date, 3rd December, and tell your friends.

Maybe they are thinking of giving to charity rather than send Christmas cards, maybe they feel that the work of Penhaligon’s Friends in supporting bereaved children throughout Cornwall is important, whatever the reason, make a donation during the week will mean it is doubled!  Thank you.
