A Burgess Hill-based charity, which provides one to one emotional listening support to children finding it hard to express their thoughts and feelings safely and in positive ways, is calling on local people to help it gain extra funding through Localgiving’s Grow Your Tenner campaign.

Time 4 Children will be using the funds to train additional volunteer practitioners who will help us give even more time to these children and reduce our waiting list.

The campaign launches at 10am on Tuesday October 13 and will end either on November 18 at 5pm or when all the funds have run out – whichever comes first!

During the campaign, one-time donations will be matched pound-for-pound up to £10 and monthly donations up to £10 per month for three months. Time 4 Children has access to £10,000 of the match funding available!

Local supporters can help by making a donation during the campaign.

For a one-time £10 donation with Gift Aid, Time 4 Children receives £21.67! Supporters can make up to 5 one-time donations and set up a one monthly Direct Debit per charity which could result in £160 of funding.

Vicky, Founder of Time 4 Children said: “2015 has been a great year for us so far, we have helped over 50 children already and hope to help many more.

“ Grow Your Tenner is an exciting campaign and a fantastic opportunity for us to finish the year on a high.

“All donations will make a huge difference to us and with the added bonus of doubled donations we hope local people will join in.

“Even an additional £100 of funding would enable us to purchase equipment for the children to use in the sessions.”

Stephen Mallinson, Chief Executive of Localgiving, said: “Local charities are at the forefront of every community, offering vital services and supporting the most vulnerable people in society.

“Localgiving hope that through the Grow Your Tenner campaign, more people are able to connect with charities and community groups in Burgess Hill like Time 4 Children offer their support.

“The campaign also encourages local organisations to engage with online fundraising which is becoming an increasingly important channel for groups who are trying to become less dependent on grants and take control of their futures.”
