The BigGive Christmas Challenge 2017

We’re very excited to let you know that the Bus Stop Club has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. Last year, thanks to generous supporters the campaign raised over £7.2 million for participating charities.

We will be raising money for our project, East Dorset Families in crisis Respite Fund.

This funding will help families we are working with to visit Longmead farm for regular breaks – families get a supportive respite break in a safe outdoor environment as well as helping parents with healthy boundaries and other  parenting skills.

Donations to this project will be matched for 7 days from 12pm on 28th November, #GivingTuesday.

What happens during the Christmas Challenge?

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

What do I need to do?

  • Add a calendar reminder to your diary for 12pm on 28th November.
  • Have your 3D secure card details ready when you make your donation.

Please note you must not pre-fill your details prior to 12pm. A clear message will be displayed to indicate when the Challenge has started and when your donation will be doubled.

You can read more about how to donate in the Christmas Challenge here. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at

Finally, please pass on this message to anyone who you think might be interested in supporting us and having their donation doubled.

Many thanks in advance

Susan and the Bus Stop Club team.
