Happy New Year from One Degree!

Winter/Spring programme is a GO…thanks to you!

Thanks to 32 very generous donors we managed to raise £18,441 in online donations between the 28th November to the 5th December 2017.  £15k was then matched by The Big Give Campaign making our grand total a wonderful £35,837.
With this amount we have surpassed our £30k target and can now complete our current programme to its full potential.
