November 2023

The 2023 Big Give Christmas Challenge is starting soon

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest match-funded campaign.  

For seven days, the challenge offers supporters of Compaid the opportunity to double their donations — and, in doing so, make a difference to the digital skills support we offer to vulnerable people who need our help.  

You can donate to the campaign and help us reach our goal of £10,000 from Midday on Tuesday 28th November 2023 - Midday on Tuesday 5th December 2023.  

Our Big Give Campaign target this year aims to continue closing the digital divide for vulnerable people across Kent.  

Digital technology is a necessity for everything we do; it's how we communicate, access medical appointments, consume our news, shop, and entertain ourselves. What's clear is that digital technology now refers to a new world of exciting opportunities, especially for young people hoping to move into work.  

It is becoming clear that Digital skills are not just a convenience in today's world; they are a critical necessity for vulnerable learners to overcome barriers, access opportunities, and lead more inclusive and empowered lives. Compaid are here for anyone who requires our support to gain basic skills, to get online or simply understand how to use their digital devices.  

During this week’s challenge, your donation will be matched £ for £ at no extra cost to you! 

This means that if you give £10, Compaid will receive £20. An additional £2.50 on every £10 can be reclaimed by us, at no additional cost to you, if you are a UK taxpayer and tick the Gift Aid box.  

We appreciate times are financially tough for everyone now, so, whatever you can afford to donate will make a world of difference to someone in need. 

Save the date: 28th November at 12 noon is when you can donate to the Big Give Campaign! The festive season of giving is the best opportunity to give back to the community and make someone’s holiday season a little better!
