Did you know that Tuesday 28 November is known globally as Giving Tuesday? It is a “global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity.”
This year, cerebral palsy charity, Stick ‘n’ Step, is pleased to be a part of a match-funding campaign, hosted by Big Give, which launches on Giving Tuesday. Every £1 raised through the campaign has the potential to be doubled by match-funding.
Leading up to this momentous occasion, Stick ‘n’ Step has several fundraising events planned. These include a charity race night on Friday 24 November at Poulton Victoria Sports & Social Club in Wallasey and a quiz night. A number of local schools are hosting a “Go Green for Cerebral Palsy” day to raise invaluable funds towards Stick ‘n’ Step’s campaign too.
Two generous organisations have already shown their support for Stick ‘n’ Step by pledging to match- fund monies raised for the charity. Gould Family Charitable Trust has pledged £5,250 of match funding and The Reed Foundation has pledged £3,000.
Netty Doyle, Trusts & Grants Officer, said, “We are seeking support from our wonderful local community in the way of small prize donations, or perhaps hosting a fundraiser, such as a quiz night, coffee morning or raffle. Some further schools or local workplaces might want to host a “Go Green for Cerebral Palsy” day in return for a voluntary donation. #GivingTuesday is a pivotal campaign for our charity and an ideal time to ensure every fundraising effort has the maximum impact on supporting disabled children in your local area.”
If any local businesses, community groups or individuals would like to get involved, please contact Netty@sticknstep.org or call 0151 638 0888.
Stick ‘n’ Step provides free weekly conductive education sessions to children and young people with cerebral palsy up to the age of 25, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live more independent lives.
The charity relies on supporters and volunteers to help raise the £750,000 required to deliver its services to over 100 families each year at its Wallasey and Runcorn centres.
