We ended last year with a bang after we exceeded our The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018 target and raised a whopping £105,497!

An amazing 250 donors gave to our appeal, which was match funded by our Challenge Champions Candis Magazine and, our pledger and long-time supporter, Colonel Alan Jukes.

It was the third time Canine Partners has taken part in the campaign, which ran from 27 November to 4 December 2018. In 2016 we raised over £60,000, followed by raising over £70,000 a year later in 2017. We absolutely smashed the previous years as well as our 2018 target of £90,000!

Overall the campaign raised a total of over £13.3m for 589 participating charities, according to The Big Give’s website. The average donation in the campaign was £175 and over 35,000 donated, with #ChristmasChallenge18 trending on Twitter for most of the opening day.

The Big Give claim the campaign gained celebrity supporters such as David Tennant, Professor Green and Davina McCall, who released videos in support of some of the charities participating in the campaign.

On The Big Give’s website they say their 10th Christmas challenge reached an important milestone of raising over £100m for good causes, with the total now standing at £112,652,378.

What a way to end the year! A huge thank you to everyone who donated during The Big Give 2018.
