The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2020

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is now open!

Donate now

From midday on Tuesday 1st December to midday on Tuesday 8th December, all donations to the KAA Intrepidus Trust, made via the Big Give website, will be doubled!

The Intrepidus Trust is delighted to be taking part this year, and with your help, we aim to raise £25,000 to cover the costs of our activities in 2020-21.

The Big Give is the UK’s largest online match-funding campaign. All donations made via the Big Give website to the Intrepidus Trust during the week of the campaign will be doubled by two match funders – a generous private donor, and one of the Big Give’s official partners, the Childhood Trust.

This is an exciting opportunity for us to make sure that we can unlock lots more opportunities for our students this year, and for you to double the value of your donation to a truly brilliant cause.


Where will the money go?

With your help we can raise £25,000 to support the following programmes which rely on donations to continue:

£2,500 will meet the costs of a term of outdoor rowing tuition and swimming for 245 students.

£5,000 will pay for mentoring and residentials for vulnerable children including those at risk of academic exclusion.

£7,500 will enable 78 students to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award programme.

£10,000 will pay for a year of weekly 1:1 instrumental tuition for 30 disadvantaged students.


How do I make a donation?

All donations must be made via the Big Give website – please click this link or go to the Big Give website and search for the KAA Intrepidus Trust. Donations can only be made by debit or credit card (sorry no cheques, CAF cheques or bank transfers).

All donations made between midday on 1st December and midday on 8th December will be doubled and Gift-Aided.


Donor Gifts

All donors to our Big Give appeal will be entered into a draw to win one of these lovingly crafted cushions or masks.

A group of creative parents at the school want to say ‘thank you’, ‘shukran’, and ‘obrigado’ for your support! At their weekly sewing group they crafted these cushions embroidered with ‘thank you’ in the 59 home languages spoken at the school, and these adjustable, double-layer masks that come with their own little bag.

A lovely stocking filler or a gift to yourself this Christmas!

Please leave your email address when you make a donation to be entered into the draw.
