We’re excited to announce that we’ve been selected to take part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021. 

This campaign is a way for you to make your donations go even further… twice as far, in fact! Every pound you donate to Fareshare Sussex from 12 pm on the 30th of November (also known as #givingtuesday) to 12 pm on the 7th December will be doubled by supporters who have pledged to match the value of donations we receive until we reach our target of £10,000. All you need to do is make your donation via our Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign page.

In 2020, we did not only meet our target of £8,000 but we exceeded it! Thanks to your generosity we raised a grand total of £10,783 in the space of just one week which funded over 43,132 meals to vulnerable people across Sussex and Surrey. This year, the goal is to repeat if not improve that fantastic achievement. Will you be one of us?

Since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have seen an unprecedented demand for our service. FareShare Sussex has more than tripled the monthly volume of food distributed to services, projects, and charities who in turn support some of the most vulnerable in our communities. In 2021, we have also been challenged by the shortage of HGV drivers, a national crisis that will also impact the lives of vulnerable families across the UK. Your support will go a long way in helping us to continue to deliver food not only during Christmas but in the struggling time ahead.

So, don’t forget to visit our Christmas Challenge webpage and make your donation between the 30th November -7th of December to double your impact. Together we can continue with our mission to fight hunger, tackle food waste and empower volunteers in Sussex and Surrey.
