For our winter fundraising campaign this year we tested out The Big Give Christmas Challenge. As the largest match funding campaign in the UK, we gave our supporters the opportunity to double their donation so they could have twice the impact on MindOut’s counselling service.
We never expected to hit our £4000 target within 24 hours of the campaign going live! Enormous thanks to everyone who pledged, donated or shared the campaign.
We are now aiming for £6000 and you can still donate today until 12noon (Tuesday 7th December). These donations will not be match funded but we truly appreciate your Christmas gift that will allow more LGBTQ people to access our much-needed counselling service.
We must continually fundraise for this valuable service that gives support to people who would not be able to afford private alternatives or who wait months for NHS talking therapies. We receive no statutory funding for counselling.
