We’re participating in this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge – will you help?

Join us for the UK’s largest matched funding campaign: between 3 and 10 December, your donation of £5 or more will be doubled, meaning you’ll be able to help even more pupils in areas of socio-economic deprivation to study classics.

Thanks to the generosity of Geoffrey and Caroline de Jager, Ian and Caroline Laing and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we’re able to raise an amazing £100,000 through this year’s campaign. This will help to introduce a further 6,000 pupils and 150 teachers to classical mythology, philosophy, archaeology and languages.

Please contribute online between Tuesday 3 December at noon and Tuesday 10 December at noon. Every pound we raise online, up to £50,000, will be matched pound for pound.

To participate, visit this webpage between those dates and you will be redirected to The Big Give’s website.

Please help us spread the word about this campaign through social media or by requesting flyers (email so that we can tell more people about our work to bring classics to state schools.
