One donation, twice the impact

14 November 2017

This year, we’re part of The Big Give, a week-long funding challenge. Between midday on Tuesday 28th November and midday on Tuesday 5th December, we’ll be trying to raise £2,000 for RSN. This will then be matched by 10 RSN ‘champions’ and a charitable trust, giving us a grand total of £4,000! So, if someone gives £10, we’ll get £20. If someone gives £40, we’ll get £80. And so on…
