Between 3 and 10 December, we asked for donations of £5 or more which were then doubled, thanks to the generosity of Geoffrey and Caroline de Jager, Ian and Caroline Laing and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Thanks to 223 donors we were 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.
Every pound donated on the Big Give website to Classics for All’s ‘Raising Aspiration through Classics’ Christmas Challenge campaign (between noon 3 to noon 10 December) was matched pound for pound. We reached our ultimate goal of £100k on 10 December – in fact, the total raised, with Gift Aid*, was £112k.
You can read more about our campaign our page on The Big Give’s website.
*Gift Aid not matched but brings an added bonus to Classics for All.
