The Big Give Christmas Challenge – help Jessie May DOUBLE our donations!

We are taking part in the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign – the Big Give Christmas Challenge. This means for just 1 week – between midday on Tuesday 27th November and midday on Tuesday 4th December, every £ donated to our charity will be matched – so worth double! Our aim is to reach our target of £23,100, allowing Jessie May to welcome 11 additional children with life limiting conditions to our services. You can now get your donation DOUBLED by visiting our Big Give profile here – or by clicking the button below!

Why us?

The Big Give Challenge offers supporters of Jessie May the opportunity to have their donation instantly DOUBLED on during the week of the campaign. This runs from midday #GivingTuesday 27th November, to midday Tuesday 4th December.

So how does the Christmas Challenge work? Watch the video below!

There are currently 11 children within our operating areas not receiving our free respite and palliative care support. Your help means we can welcome all of these children onto our caseload. We need to raise £11,550 of pledge funding to match fund individual donations during the Big Give campaign and ensure we can:

  • Continue to operate a no waiting list policy so new families can receive our support immediately
  • Conduct the home visits needed to accept and set-up 11 new children onto the Jessie May caseload
  • Provide palliative care and holistic support to improve the whole family’s health and well-being
  • Increase parents’ sense of belonging to a supportive community of others with terminally ill children


You can find out more about the work of our nurses and what impact The Big Give Christmas Challenge could have on the support we provide to families by listening to our recent interview on Bradley Stoke FM:
