2020 has been a tough year for charitable organisations across the globe, and the UK was no different. So we were delighted when, at the end of November, a kind benefactor offered to match all donations made to the EHERCC in the UK around Giving Tuesday. The offer was capped at £10,000. The charity immediately brought this wonderful offer to the attention of the whole EHE group, asking for all and any donations that people could spare.
With the back drop of the pandemic, the charity was still unsure of what support it would receive. Recognising the difficulties faced, the donor generously agreed that other fundraising efforts ongoing at the time could be aggregated into the total. That generous offer, coupled with the usual brilliant support from so many of our regular supporters, meant that the target of £10,000 was exceeded, with a total of £10,7465 raised. With the matched donations, the total sum raised for EHE research was £21, 492.
We want to express our sincere thanks to the matching donor, and to all our members and their supporters who helped reach this amazing total. We are so grateful.
