Help Disability Huntingdonshire (DISH) achieve £1000
Matched funding available for charities in Huntingdonshire
DISH is participating in Localgiving’s Grow Your Tenner campaign, launched on 18th October
DISH will use funds raised through the campaign to make home visits to people with disabilities and help them to apply for welfare benefits.
The campaign will match one-time donations pound-for-pound up to £10, and monthly donations up to £10 per month for 3 months
The campaign will end either on the 17th November at 5pm or when all the funds have run out – whichever comes first! During the campaign, one-time donations will be matched pound-for-pound up to £10 and monthly donations up to £10 per month for three months.
Local supporters can help by making a donation during the campaign. For a one-time £10 donation with Gift Aid, DISH receives £21.67! Supporters can make one-time donations and set up a one monthly Direct Debit per charity which could result in over £80 funding.
The government has contributed £245,000 to match donations to charities and community groups made through the campaign, bringing the total amount available to match donations to £345,000. It has also announced plans for a Local Charities Day on 16th December.
Audrey Gatford, manager at DISH said, “2016 has been a great year for us so far, we have had contact with over 324 clients, and we have helped them gain a total annual equivalent of £209,000 in welfare benefits. Grow Your Tenner is an exciting campaign and a fantastic opportunity for us to finish the year on a high. All donations will make a huge difference to us and with the added bonus of doubled donations we hope local people will join in. Even an additional £100 of funding would enable us to fund our telephone helpline for a month.
