Can you help us raise £15,000 in five days?
We are taking part in the Big Give’s Champions for Children campaign supported by the Childhood Trust until midday on Tuesday 15 June.
If you give us £1 via the campaign web page this will be match-funded. £1 becomes £2, £10 becomes £20 and £100 becomes £200.
The funds will pay for vital services for children, young people and their families who have been harmed by crime.
If we raise £15,000 it will be doubled to £30,000.
We support up to 3,000 children a year who have been harmed by crimes such as sexual abuse, neglect, and domestic abuse.
We also support families affected by homicide where a parent or close family member has been killed through crime.
Our head office is based in Copse Court, Thorpe Wood, Peterborough and Peterborough City Council is supporting the campaign and is encouraging Peterborough residents and businesses to donate if they can to help the charity reach its target.
Peterborough City Council Leader Wayne Fitzgerald said: “Embrace is a fantastic charity that really turns around the lives of children who have been through so much. We wanted to help spread the word and help local people become champions for children who’ve been harmed by crime.”
Embrace Child Victims of Crime chief executive Anne Campbell said: “The Covid restrictions have made it really difficult to fundraise so this campaign is incredibly important because it gives our supporters the chance to double the impact of their donations.
“The funds raised will help families who have been harmed by crime and disadvantaged by the pandemic get practical support to help them rebuild their lives.
“Our support includes food and school uniform vouchers to books, toys and educational resources to give the children a better, brighter future.
“No donation is too small every £1 is very much appreciated.”
