Livability are inviting people to take part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge this year, to raise money for the Flourish project at Livability Holton Lee – a wellbeing and horticultural therapy project in Dorset.
For a three day period only, any donations that are made to Livability online can be doubled through the scheme.
“This Christmas, Livability‘s message is all about why Friendship Really Matters. Many disabled people are at risk of greater social isolation, but with positive community connections, people are more included and their wellbeing does better. Livability’s Flourish project in Dorset is one project that’s really doing a lot to help disabled people and those living mental illness grow confidence and social networks,” says Anna Maria Mullen, Livability’s Major Donor and Corporate Partner Manager.
In one year, 97% of people who attend Flourish report an increase in social networks and a decrease in social isolation. Livability want to grow the provision of this project – and others like it – so more people can benefit from good community connections.
The charity wants to raise £5000 through the scheme in order to fund accessibility provision at the project, helping the people that use the service to gain work experience and supporting them to take part social events that build confidence.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge runs for 3 days only. Livability are asking people to sign up in advance so they can be alerted on the day of the challenge.
The scheme works on a first come, first served basis, so it’s a big dash to the finishing line. The more donations that can be secured early, the higher the chances of hitting our target.
