Plant Your Future win Big Give ‘Best Newcomer’ award
We are over the moon to announce that Plant Your Future is the winner of The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018 ‘Best Newcomer’ award! It means an additional £1000 added to the £11,747.50 we raised during the week long campaign in December — read more about our campaign in our Christmas Challenge post from earlier this year.
The Big Give made their announcement on their website and Twitter at 3pm, on the 8th April. Of the winners, The Big Give wrote: “This year we had a number of high quality applications from charities tackling some of the biggest challenges in our society and our planet. The winning charities should be very proud of the impact their hard work and creativity has achieved. These case studies are excellent examples of good practice and I would urge charities participating in future Big Give campaigns to read through them. As with previous years, The Reed Foundation is pleased to award additional funds to all of the Christmas Challenge Award winners to support their important work.”
Chairman and Founder, Jenny Henman, was delighted when the news came in. “It is a real honour for Plant Your Future to have received the Christmas Challenge 18 Best Newcomer Award. We’re thrilled our fundraising campaign — run entirely by volunteers — has been recognised in this way.”
We are so grateful to all those who donated and supported Plant Your Future during the week, and who continue to do so still. If you missed out on doubling your donation during the Christmas Challenge, you can still help make a difference and donate today.
