Our Big Give Christmas Challenge!

We are thrilled to have been selected to take part in this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge – the UK’s biggest online match fundraising campaign.

Our online donations page will open at midday on 27 November and you’ll then have just seven days to donate and see your donation DOUBLED.

The money raised will help us fund a specialist Siblings camp and allow us to welcome even more children. At Over The Wall, we encourage campers to become the hero of their own stories and our Therapeutic Recreation programme focuses on helping our campers to realise the incredible abilities and talents they possess. We aim to break down the barriers associated with illness and disability and bring families back together. Siblings of children with illnesses can especially struggle, often feeling side-lined – and that’s why we need your help.

What can you do?

  1. Save the date: 27 November, 12.00pm or register for a no-obligation reminder by clicking here.
  2. Make a donation, however big or small via our Big Give project page here: bit.ly/otwbiggive and it will be DOUBLED (like a buy-one-get-one-free offer, but better because you’re helping children with serious illnesses have a fantastic, life-changing experience!). Do not attempt to donate before 27 November at 12 noon, or your donation will not be doubled.
  3. If you’re already planning a fundraising event, coincide your donation collections with the Big Give and donate online via our project page when it opens on 27 November at midday.
  4. Spread the word on social media and help us reach our target!

During the week we will be reminding all of our supporters how they can get involved, so make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

If you have any questions about how to donate or want to talk to us about planning an event to help us reach our target, email giving@otw.org.uk
