Dig deep for the festive challenge

A COUNTY wildlife charity is hoping supporters will dig deep for the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Northumberland Wildlife Trust has been selected to take part in the annual online appeal, funded by the Reed Foundation, the charity arm of Reed Specialist Recruitment Services.

If the trust can raise £20,000 next Thursday, Friday and Saturday it will receive match funding from a number of foundations and trusts.

There is a certain amount of money allocated for each day and once it is pledged, the fund closes until the following day so it is best to donate just after 10am.

Donations can be made by visiting www.thebiggive.org.uk and searching for Northumberland Wildlife Trust.
