On 5, 6 and 7 December we asked you to support our Sponsor a Dancer campaign in the Big Give Christmas Challenge – and you didn’t disappoint! We kicked off the Big Give by welcoming dance students from Headingley Ballet School who presented a £125 cheque towards the campaign following a second-hand uniform sale run by the students to raise money. By the end of the Big Give we had achieved £59,053.80 in donations, beating last year’s total by more than £2,000!
The Big Give Christmas Challenge in support of our Sponsor a Dancer campaign has once again been a big success. We raised £59,053.80 over the three day challenge. The total includes £29,229 online donations and gift aid of over £7,000, together with the matched funding. This is a new record for us, beating last year’s total of £57,034.24. A massive thank you to everyone who supported our 2013 BIG GIVE Christmas Campaign.
In a nutshell describe your job and how you got into it.
This year we are delighted that Northern Ballet's Sponsor A Dancer campaign has been selected to participate in The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2012. You can double your support for Sponsor A Dancer by taking part and help finance the future of the Company. The Big Give is an annual match funding event. On 6, 7 & 8 December any money you donate to us, including the renewal of your Sponsor A Dancer donation, could be doubled.
