The Big Give Christmas Challenge helped us to raise nearly £100,000 to safeguard mountain plants at risk of extinction.
More than 800 generous supporters put their hands in their pockets in the run up to Christmas to help us raise nearly £100,000 for threatened mountain plants.
We took part in Big Give’s Christmas Challenge to raise money for “Moving Mountains – species on the peak of extinction”. This campaign aims to safeguard mountain plants which need cold weather and a regular blanketing of snow each winter, but are being forced further up our mountains each year as a direct result of climate change.
We were thrilled to see numerous pledges roll in from our fantastic supporters over the course of just once week.
We also received substantial donations from Formula Botanica, Thakeham and two individual supporters. Their generosity unlocked match funding from the Big Give, in turn doubling the impact of every penny we received.
The money raised during the Christmas Challenge is being used to fund crucial research into mountain plants. This will help us understand how to bolster populations, increase their resilience to climate change and protect their future.
Even our supposedly temperate UK mountains are home to the most extreme of habitats and the most delicate of plants. It is these plants that are now at risk and that we are fighting so hard for.
