One donation, twice the impact!

What is the 
Christmas Challenge?

The Christmas Challenge is the UK's largest online match funding campaign. The campaign is run by the Big Give online donation platform and has raised over £103 million since it started.

It offers supporters of Bluebell the opportunity to double their donations.
For example, an online donation of £10 is doubled to £20. If Gift Aid is claimed, the donation could be worth £25. Donations are doubled whilst there are funds in the matching pot.boxes

Who matches the 
online donations?

The matching pot used to double donations is made up of two parts.

Part of the matching pot is funding that Bluebell has secured via pledges in the run up to the campaign.

The other part of the pot is funding from external 'Champions.'


"Without the professional support and community feel...
my story may well have ended very differently."

Georgia, Bluebell beneficiary

"So many people suffer in silence and they shouldn’t at all because there’s help out there and you can get better. Without Bluebell I don’t know if I would be here today to be honest. They were definitely a life line"

Nikki, Bluebell beneficiary
