This year, make your One Degree donation in the #ChristmasChallenge20. From 1-8 December, when you donate via the Big Give platform your donation will be doubled. One donation, twice the impact!

There is a risk of us not reaching our Big Give target this year and our 2021 Programme will not be possible if we do not reach our Big Give target, so your help in spreading the word or donating WILL make a huge difference!
