The First Call

Help us answer more than 26,000 calls and emails to our Helpline next year. With your help and the Big Give, we aim to raise £52,000 to power Suffolk Mind’s Helpline throughout 2025

This year, Suffolk Mind hopes to raise £52k in a campaign that culminates with double donations week as part of the Christmas Big Give challenge.

It costs us £1,000 a week to run Suffolk Mind’s 0300 111 6000 Helpline, and we want to secure it for a whole year. Suffolk Mind’s Helpline receives more than 100 calls and emails a day, therefore this money could make a lot of difference to local people.

We invite anyone and everyone to donate, no matter how big or small, before a final push during double donations week at 12pm 3 December to 12pm 10 December.

What is double donations week?

Every year, Big Give host a Christmas challenge which enables charities to set a target match pot total which if met, will be doubled by Big Give. We have had successful campaigns in the past, supporting our GreenCare projects in 2022 and our Children, Families and Young People service in 2023.

I’m a business. Can I pledge towards your match pot for double donations week?

Yes please! We are looking for corporate, community or even individual pledgers to help us build our match pot by each pledging £1,000 (which will become £2,000 during double donations week). If they can pledge even more, we’d be so grateful.

Pledgers can pledge now with nothing to pay until December 2024 (our team will simply need you to complete a short Big Give pledge form to confirm your pledge in September).

Corporates who pledge at least £1,000 will get:

  • Your logo on this event page
  • A digital ‘Big Give Pledger’ pin for a signature strip or website
  • Your logo on our Who we help page throughout 2025
  • Your business featured in our 2024 Impact Report (read our 2023 Impact Report)
  • Your business named in our website articles. Where possible, we will offer quote opporunities or mentions for press releases throughout the campaign
  • Your logo in our email communications about this campaign to our newsletter subscribers
  • A social media ‘thank you’ from Suffolk Mind with your business tagged (where possible)

If you’d like more information, please contact our Fundraising Team.

Can I donate during double donations week if I’m not a pledger?

Yes please! During double donations week all of Suffolk Mind’s donate links will automatically be redirected to the Big Give platform, enabling anyone to donate if they want to. Just remember that double donations week doesn’t open until 12pm 3 December.

Can I donate before double donations week?

Absolutely. We invite donations to this campaign at any time (please just be aware they are only doubled 3 December to 10 December and when made via the Big Give link which will be published in due course). In the meantime, please make your donation via this page. This will ensure your donation is restricted to this particular campaign and supports the running of our 0300-line as opposed to other services.

Help us to be someone’s first call, not their last.
