FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Save the Date and Donate!
We would like to offer a huge thank you to all those that supported us in raising pledges for The Big Give Christmas Challenge and are delighted to announce that our Charity Champion for this year’s challenge is The Reed Foundation.
Every gift we receive online on the 5th, 6th and 7th of December could be doubled through The Big Give and support from our pledgers and Charity Champion. In simple terms this means if you donate £10 to Trestle’s new mask project we will receive £20 and the closer you donate to 10am (when the funds are released) the more likely it is that your donations will be doubled.
We hope you can join us on Saturday 7 December for our Donation Station, Jumble, and Bric-a-Brac Sale, at Trestle Arts Base where Staff will be on hand from 9.30am to guide you through the online donation process and at 10.30am, we will open the doors to the Jumble sale!
This is Trestle’s most ambitious fundraising project and we hope that you will be able to spare a few pounds to help support us or spread the word on our behalf in the lead up to the Challenge. Please follow us on Twitter @TrestleTheatre or like us on Facebook /TrestleTheatre for updates and ways in which you can help!
