We are really excited to announce that we are one of the ten charitable projects selected by the Greenham Trust for their Christmas Double Matched Fundraising Day on The Good Exchange.

We are raising funds to maintain and sustain our core services for the next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic during the winter months and into 2021 to make sure that we can continue our nutritious hot lunch delivery six days a week and welfare services for the over 65s in the Newbury area who live alone and are becoming increasingly isolated.

On Friday 11th December, every £1 donated to Fair Close via our project on The Good Exchange will be double matched by the Greenham Trust so that a donation of £10 will turn into £30. We hope to raise £15,000 on that day in donations which will help us to keep the Fair Close Centre running through the winter and beyond in to the Spring and Summer of 2021 to make sure that we can continue to provide our vital services to the elderly in the Newbury area.

Can you help us by organising a fundraising event? Can you hold a virtual coffee morning or organise a cake sale, or dye your hair red white and blue and get your friends to sponsor you? Anything you can do for us would be fantastic and would benefit the vulnerable, the lonely and the recently bereaved senior citizens of Newbury and the surrounding area.

Get in touch with us at hello@fairclosecentre.org and let us know how you will help us to reach our target on 11th December.

Please note: Donations made by credit or debit card to our project on The Good Exchange on Friday 11th December between 00:01 and 24:00 will be “double matched” by Greenham Trust meaning that for every £1 donated Greenham Trust will award £2, so £1 becomes £3, £5 becomes £15, £20 becomes £60 and so on up to a maximum of £5,000 in donations, £15,000 including matched funding.  When the £5,000 target has been reached and the project has received £10,000 in matched funding, donations can still be made and will be greatly appreciated but will no longer be matched or double matched.
