Double your donation at no extra cost to you!

We are very excited to confirm that we have once again been selected to take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2016, the UK’s largest match funding campaign

The Big Give Christmas ChallengeThe Big Give Christmas Challenge will commence at 12 noon on Tuesday 29 November – #GivingTuesday

It is the perfect opportunity to make a donation to the Family Holiday Association and double the amount we receive, at no extra cost to you. And, of course, doubling your donation means twice as many families can benefit from a much-needed and often life changing break.

How does The Big Give Christmas Challenge work?

The campaign starts at 12 midday on 29th November and runs until 12 midday, Friday 2nd December. We will be able to double donations while our match funds last, so please make sure you donate to our project Just the ticket as soon after 12pm on Tuesday 29th November as possible.

If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend donating during the Christmas Challenge when your donation will be doubled and make even more of a difference to us.

Giving TuesdayWhat do you need to do next?

  • Add a calendar reminder to your diary for 12 midday on Tuesday 29th November including this link
