Supporting us this Christmas

The end of the year and Christmas is a time that we know many people like to think about supporting their favourite charities so we thought we would share with you details of a few different ways that you can support us over the course of the festive season, some without costing you a penny!

Join us at our Christmas Carol Service

Our Carol Service is a wonderful way to kick off your festive season whilst raising money for our work. With performances this year from the London International Gospel Choir and BBC Young Musician of the Year finalist Matilda Lloyd, as well as the chance to sing your favourite carols, the evening is sure to leave you feeling in the Christmas spirit. Tickets are £20, which includes a glass of wine and mince pie after the service.


Donation matching – one donation, double the impact

This Christmas, your donation to African Promise could have double the impact as we again participate in the BigGive Christmas Challenge. Starting at noon on #GivingTuesday 28th November, donations to African Promise are being matched £-for-£ when made via the BigGive donation platform. There has not been a better time to donate to African Promise this year so if you have been considering supporting our work, the week of the BigGive Christmas Challenge is the time to do so! Donations will be doubled until noon on the 5th December or until our matching funds are exhausted but please note that only donations made via our project page on the BigGive website will be eligible for matching. Please follow the link below for further info and to sign up for a reminder email.


Raise funds for free when you shop online

You don’t have to make a donation or buy a ticket to support our work this Christmas; you can also raise funds simply when you shop online. Thanks to our friends at easyfundraising, every time you shop with any one of thousands of popular retailers a small percentage of your purchase will be donated to us…without costing you a penny more! Retailers include the likes of Amazon, John Lewis, ASOS, Expedia and Waitrose…so you can raise funds not only on your Christmas present shopping but also on your winter holiday, the outfit for your office Christmas party, even on your Christmas turkey and sprouts! Sign up today and join our 91 registered supporters who have already helped us raise almost £1,500 so far.


Nominate us as your favourite charity and help us win £1,000

You could help us win £1,000 this Christmas simply by nominating us as your favourite charity! To celebrate their 130th anniversary, Ecclesiastical, the UK’s leading church insurer, is giving away £130,000 between 130 charities in their 12 days of giving Christmas giveaway starting on the 6th December. You have until midnight on Tuesday 5th December to nominate us via the short nomination form on their website – you will need our charity number to complete the application form and this is 1122285.


We do hope that you will be able to include African Promise in your thoughts and in your giving this festive season.

From all the team at African Promise and on behalf of our partner schools we wish you a joyous and peaceful Christmas and a very healthy and prosperous New Year.
