2020 Campaign Impact

In 2020, The Christmas Challenge raised a total of £3,060,469 for 85 projects supporting approximately 144,000 children and young people in London. Six months into the funding period, we asked our charities how their campaign funds had been spent and what outcomes they had seen to date.

"We are absolutely thrilled about the outcome.. our total number of donors was up 29% on our previous maximum and more than double the number we achieved just 2 years ago. The impact of Big Give on growing our donor base is amazing and we couldn’t do it without The Childhood Trust. Thank you so much."
