The Big Give Christmas Campaign

Gingerbread are delighted to announce that we’ll be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge! It’s an amazing opportunity for us and everyone we support: for one week only, donations to Gingerbread will be doubled!

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign. With the generosity of our supporters and the Monday Charitable Trust, every donation from 1st to 8th December will worth double the donation amount.


  • For every donation of £5, Gingerbread receives £10
  • For every donation of £10, Gingerbread receives £20
  • For every donation of £25, Gingerbread receives £50
  • …and we’re sure you can do the maths on the rest!

2020 has been tough for all of us. For single parent families, however, it’s been especially challenging, with many having lost jobs and income.

This Christmas, we’re raising funds to provide support for single parents through:

Expert advice and information from Gingerbread’s free helpline and website, offering the tools needed to manage the financial and practical challenges single parents may face.

Peer-to-peer support services, connecting single parent families through local groups, and our online forum, which will be fully moderated over the whole Christmas break.

Evidence based research, policy and campaigning work to create a fairer system, giving single parents and their children the chance to thrive.

Donations made on The Big Give page between the 12pm on 1st December 2020 and 12pm on 8th December 2020 will be match funded, so any donation you make during that week will be doubled!
