Big Give Christmas Challenge: we hit our target!


Thank you to everyone who donated or helped raise awareness of our Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign. With your help we hit our £60,000 target on the penultimate day of the challenge, accessing all of the matched funds available to us. Including Gift Aid the total raised for our Awards programme will be £68,050. This is £12,500 more than last year, making 2019 our most successful Christmas Challenge ever. So thank you all so much for giving talent a chance.


Awards for Young Musicians was selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. This year we wanted to raise £60,000 to support 120 young musicians through our Awards Programme. And with your help, we have done this!


At our recent 2019 Awards day we asked our young musicians and their parents and carers to help us make a campaign video for the campaign. This really helped us to spread the message far and wide.



If you missed the chance to donate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge but would like to see your donation doubled, please consider joining our Presto! campaign, and give regularly from £5 per month.
