Champions for Children 2023

We’re delighted to have raised £54,713 in our Champions for Children fundraising campaign!

Every penny raised will go a long way in supporting families stretched to breaking point by rising food prices. Thanks to our supporters, many more families with young children can buy fresh fruit & veg, giving their children the healthiest possible start. We’re sincerely grateful.

We’re grateful to our pledge funder, The Artemis Charitable Foundation, and our champion funder, The Childhood Trust. Between them, they create the matching pot that is then doubled by our incredible supporters, so we couldn’t run the campaign without their generous support.

We received fantastic support for this campaign thanks to some very dedicated supporters who raised funds by completing our 100km in May challenge and paying in the funds they raised to the Big Give campaign. They raised an amazing amount of money which made sure we got off to a great start.

The campaign was given a huge boost by a very generous donation from Margaret, a Hackney-based creative consultancy, who donated £14,100, which was then doubled to an incredible £28,200 by the match funding. Margaret is a member of 1 Per cent for the Planet and they have committed to donating 1% of all their sales via this platform. We’re so grateful they chose us to be the beneficiaries of this commitment and we look forward to working with them in the future.

We never take our amazing supporters for granted, and we know how tough things are for people and businesses right now, but we are always blown away by how much they care about helping the families we work with give their children the healthiest possible start in life. We’re always grateful and inspired by their support.

Our next match funding campaign will start on the 28th of November and run for just one week. If you’d like to be updated and have the opportunity to have your donation doubled, please sign up for our newsletter.
