The Big Give

The BigGive is Active Now








The BIG GIVE Summer Challenge countdown begins! Last year, with your amazing support
for our Summer Challenge and Christmas Challenge, we raised £27,000!

Your donations allowed us to take disadvantaged, low-income families we support (more than 800 people: children, young people and their parents) to: Willows Farm, Whipsnade Zoo, Southend-on-Sea beach, the London Transport Museum, the Chickenshed Theatre and Legoland. We also hosted a wonderful picnic in the beautiful gardens at Avenue House and a Christmas party with presents for the children.

Trips and outings have become such an essential part of our work with vulnerable isolated families on low income. They provide enriching family experiences and support the development of good social and communication skills as well as the emotional and physical well being of adults and children alike.

“Just want to say thank you for organising this trip. My daughter and I have never been on a farm before. There was lots to do and my daughter enjoyed it even though she is only 17 months. There was animals, pantomime, arts and crafts, tour bus, sand play area, tractor play area, Easter egg hunt, lots of play areas, picnic areas, rides. She was so excited and enjoyed the trip. This will definitely be one of our most cherished memories. As I have nearly all of it on video and pictures. It makes me excited about the things I will do with my daughter in the future.”

From a supported family

Home-Start Barnet is once again taking part in the Big Give Summer Challenge. With your help we hope to raise £16,000 for trips and outings for 650 children and their families, and a six-week family healthy-eating programme over the summer holidays. Holidays are the time when so many low-income families struggle to manage financially as many of their children are missing out on free school meals as well as social activities.

YOUR SUPPORT will be instrumental in reaching our target of £16,000 to fund the much-needed trips and outings for up to 650 children and their families.  Please give!
