Big Give 2020
A donation made is a donation doubled!
British Liver Trust is once again taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, which means that Christmas donations can be doubled if made through the Big Give website between midday on Tuesday 1st December and midday on Tuesday 8th December.
Put simply, if our donors can help to raise £15,000 this Christmas, it will be turned into £30,000 – vital funds to invest in our patient support services.
You are probably aware of the saying “A problem shared is a problem halved” and it is with this philosophy that our liver nurses answer our helpline and speak with so many of you.
This year thousands have needed advice and support, during what has been a very tough year. Our nurses have taken calls from all across the UK, but we know that some of you have not been able to get through when you needed to, and that some of you have had to call many times before you were able to access much-needed support.
We want to change this and add at least one extra nurse to our helpline team.
Whatever you can give this Christmas, every donation from £5 to £5,000 will be matched, if you donate through the Big Give Christmas Challenge website between midday Tuesday 1st December and midday Tuesday 8th December.
Please donate to help us be here for everyone who needs us.
The Big Give matches donations through partnerships with over 20 funding Champions.
The British Liver Trust is grateful to the Reed Foundation for choosing us to benefit from their Champion funding this year.
Why the British liver Trust helpline is so vital
When I was diagnosed in March this year, I looked online to find out about the lesions on my liver and that’s when I discovered the British Liver Trust. I called the helpline to speak to the liver nurses. I like talking to them, it does me good. They don’t have to care, but they do. They give me encouragement and strength. It’s unbelievable strength they give me. I know that I’ve got some very concerned people looking out for me. I know that I can call and talk to them about anything – the journey I am on, the next steps. They are five-star angels.
