The Big Give

The Big Give

The Big Give Christmas Challenge provides a unique opportunity to double the value of any online donations made from midday on Tuesday 1 December until midday on Tuesday 8 December 2020, until we reach our target.

Your generous donations will fund scholarships and support programmes that will give our students extra help in these extraordinary times, helping them to fulfil their potential and achieve their goals.

For many students, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused additional financial hardship. Family incomes may have been impacted and holiday and term time work to fund study have been hard to secure. This is causing academically able and motivated students who want to go to university to rethink their plans. Our goal is to raise funds so that despite the impact the pandemic is having on their lives today, these students can continue to pursue the dreams they have for their future.  

"The Scholarship has continued                     "The scholarship helps me financ-
to expose me to leadership opportunities        ially because having a disability
over the past academic year, which has          makes balancing a demanding
vastly contributed to a further growth in         part-time job alongside a degree
my self-confidence." - Renee                               very difficult." - Chloe

Funds raised will go towards scholarships and to help meet costs associated with going to university, such as books, travel and accommodation. As higher education embraces the benefits of technology to improve the learning experience, personal IT equipment, such as a laptop, is now essential. To achieve their goals, our students need resources, support and opportunities to prepare for life after campus. Your donations will help us to help our students to succeed at university and beyond.  

To pledge your support this year, please complete our online pledge form.
