Palace for Life joins Giving Tuesday!

Palace for Life will be taking part in #GivingTuesday 2021, the global day of generosity taking place on 30 November.

Palace for Life is thrilled to announce that we’re one of the thousands of organisations taking part in this year’s #GivingTuesday campaign, to be held on 30 November. 

#GivingTuesday offers the opportunity to give back to good causes, either by donating to charity, reaffirming commitment to a cause, volunteering time or supporting others by simply helping a friend, neighbour or family member. Over the last year the global pandemic has seen charities step up like never before, helping keep communities going across the country; #GivingTuesday allows those who are able to, the chance to give back.  

Over the past 18 months Palace for Life have worked hard to support our community overcome the impact of the pandemic. We have continued in-person presence within schools, provided new girls-only, pan-disability and Get Involved sessions aimed at getting more young people active, delivered mental health workshops to over 400 school pupils and distributed more than 27,000 meals to those in need. The pandemic has pushed us to work harder than ever to help the young people of south London.

Your support allows us to continue doing this.

By supporting the Foundation on Giving Tuesday you will help us to support more young people than ever before. Over the next year we will continue to deliver our successful projects across south London, whilst adding a larger focus on diversionary activities to keep young south Londoners safe and away from serious violence, knife crime and gang activities.

To do this we will be implementing further free sports sessions in some of the most disadvantaged areas across south London, deliver more one-to-one mentoring sessions to individuals who are in, or at risk of being in the criminal justice system and provide young people with even more opportunities into education and employment thanks to our Route to Employment pathway.  

Palace for Life CEO, Mike Summers is calling on supporters of the Foundation to embrace the campaign: “The generosity of Palace fans never ceases to amaze us, from the Palace Kitchen to the Marathon March, their support has always been incredible. We’re really excited to see what our supporters can raise on our first GivingTuesday to help us further our work throughout south London.” 

In 2020 #GivingTuesday raised more than £20 million for UK charities through online donations, more than ever before.
