The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017!
As a charity looking to make a positive impact on the lives of young people across the city, Lincoln Drill Hall is delighted to have been chosen to be part of The Big Give Christmas Challenge fundraising campaign. Over the last few months £3750.00 has been pledged to support our campaign from supporters, trustees and business owners across the city, along with a kind pledge from The Reed Foundation for the Arts.
The Big Give will now look to ‘unlock’ those pledges with an online crowd funding campaign in the run up to Christmas. It’s really simple:
From Midday on the 28 November until midday on the 5 December we are asking our Friends, Members, Customers, Audiences and Supporters to donate whatever they can to our campaign. Every penny raised will unlock a pound of our pledges. So we are aiming to raise £3,750.00 in that week, unlock all of our pledges and raise £7,500.00 for Lincoln Drill Hall.
And that’s not the end of it! Thanks to Arts Council England’s Catalyst Evolve programme we can double that £7,500.00 again meaning that a total of £15,000 can be raised so we can keep offering, youth theatre, toddlers arts and crafts sessions, disco nights and drama sessions for disabled young people, opportunities for hundreds of kids to perform on our stage each year etc!
Remember, only donations made between 28/11 and 5/12 will be eligible so please put the date in your diary!
