The Big Give Christmas Challenge

28 November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 05 December 2017 @ 12:00 pm

Our Big Give Christmas Challenge is taking place from midday 28th November to midday 5th December 2017.

We invite you to celebrate Thanksgiving on 23rd November by raising funds for our counselling services as part of a focus on #GivingTuesday.

All money donated online at theBigGive.org.uk between 28th November and 5th December will be matched and then doubled up to our total of £16,000!

So think about what you are thankful for and start fundraising to make a real difference to young people locally at risk of homelessness this Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Every night of the year YMCA Norfolk provide a safe place for 240 young people to sleep. You can help us make Christmas special for them this year by helping to raise £5000 for Christmas dinner and gifts, plus £11000 to provide counselling and support throughout the year.

Here are some fundraising ideas to get you started…


  • Stars and Strips Non-Uniform Day
  • Thanksgiving Bake Off
  • Ideas for Brownies, Guides and Scouts


  • Donate to the YMCA instead of giving Christmas cards
  • Donate a Christmas Dinner to a young person
  • Donate a Christmas Hamper to a family

Find out full details of the ideas above, plus many other ideas and information on how to donate – simply download our booklet here.
