The Big Give – The Big Thank You

To all our Pledgers – a huge thank you. ME Research UK has reached its target of £1000 in pledges. This means that we can take part in 2021’s Big Give Charity Challenge which runs from noon 30th November 2021 – noon 7th December 2021.

However, as The Big Give have extended their deadline to 11:59pm Sunday 5th September, we have raised our pledge goal to £2,500.

Sign up here and become a Pledger – One Donation twice the Difference.

For seven days, it offers supporters the opportunity to have their donation doubled. Founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Alec Reed CBE, the Christmas Challenge has raised millions of pounds for thousands of charity projects since it launched in 2008.

It is also hoped that Pledgers’ funds will be matched by a Big Give Champion who will contributes to the match fund. This collective pot is used to double donations from online supporters who donate when the Big Give goes live.

All monies raised will be invested in more research and add to ME Research UK-funded studies globally.
