For seven days, this campaign offers our supporters the opportunity to have their donation doubled! If you donate £10 to us, we receive an additional £10 from our generous pledgers, who have already agreed to support the campaign earlier this year. This total is then matched to ‘Champion Funding’. This means that your donations will be matched, giving us the chance to raise £4,500.


The Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest digital match-funding platform, bringing together charities, philanthropists and public donations, to achieve more together. The campaign launches at midday on Tuesday 29th November and runs until midday the following Tuesday 6th December.


Donations must be done online, so if you would like to donate, please visit MySight York’s campaign page:
