The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2023

Between Tuesday 28th November and Tuesday 5th December, the Shewsy will once again be participating in the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

This year, we are targeting £100,000 to support the Club’s work in a community hit so hard by recent financial and social challenges.  When so many people are having to face up to unprecedented levels of food and fuel poverty in and around West Everton, the Shewsy continues to provide a warm and safe environment for our Junior and Senior Club members. Each day, around 100 young people attend the Youth Club and the dedication and skill of our Play and Youth Workers continues to impact positively on their lives.

Club Members themselves are rising to these challenges by organising a Youth Council which will report in to the Board of Trustees, is already taking an active interest in fundraising for our programme of Residential Trips, will give a young person’s voice to the debates about knife crime and social injustice and will explore ways in which our members can make a positive contribution to the community in which they live.

This year, the first £40,000 of funds raised through online donations will be matched thanks to the generous support of our main pledger and the champion charity funds from The Reed Foundation. Then, we are looking to find an additional £20,000 from online donations to reach our target.  This money will be used to meet the rising costs of the club’s operation, to pay for our staff and to develop their skills and to guarantee that we can deliver an expanding matrix of programmes to ensure that our members are ready for the world of work.
