We are delighted to announce that, thanks to the generosity of 48 individuals and trusts, we have raised a whopping £73,930 through the Big Give Christmas Challenge, surpassing our original target of £70,000!
Funding raised through this campaign will allow us to expand the delivery of our Hero’s Journey Life Coaching programme, working in more prisons and reaching more young people than ever before. It will enable more young people to restore their confidence, find renewed hope, and build the skills and mindset needed to plan for a positive future.
Our CEO Vicki Cardwell said:
“Young people in prison are facing enormous obstacles, so this support has never been needed more. We are blown away by the final figure of £73,930 and are grateful to each and every donor. This year we set an ambitious target, in the face of what has been a particularly challenging time for so many, and in the midst of the cost-of-living crisis. It means so much to us, and the young people we work with, that so many of our supporters have stuck by Spark Inside in such difficult times. You make the difference.”
