Our Big Give Christmas Challenge is officially ON! The Christmas Challenge kicked off today at 12 pm, so now’s the perfect time for you to make a donation to double your impact and help us to fight hunger and tackle food waste in Sussex and Surrey. 

Why should you donate now?

Until 12 pm on Tuesday 7th December, all donations we receive through our Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign page will be matched by supporters who have already pledged to equal every donation we receive until we reach our target. That means the value of your donation will be doubled at no extra cost to you.

For example, a donation of £30 from you will mean we receive £60 – enabling us to deliver enough food to provide 240 meals for vulnerable people in local areas. It really is that simple to double your donation to make twice the impact.

So, whether you can afford to donate a fiver or five hundred quid, the Christmas Challenge is a fantastic way to make your generosity go even further this Christmas.

Still, looking for a reason to donate to FareShare Sussex?

  • Households with children using local food banks have an average weekly food budget of just £8.53 per person. This simply doesn’t cover a full week’s worth of complete meals. 
  • Since the beginning of the pandemic, we tripled the amount of food we deliver on a monthly basis in the height of the response. That’s the equivalent of more than 2.6 million meals to support the most vulnerable in our community groups across Sussex and Surrey. 
  • Demand doesn’t show signs of slowing – we now support 162 local charities and projects.
