Give Big for this year's Big Give Christmas Challenge

FoE

Community Windpower (CWL) have again provided a £10,000 donation to Friends of the Earth during The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021.

The Big Give is the UK’s largest match funding platform and runs an annual Christmas Challenge to help charities across the country raise millions for great causes.

CWL’s £10,000 donation will be doubled to £20,000 thanks to The Big Give platform. The donation will support the Friends of the Earth Climate Action campaign, which is aiming to reach £140,000, Friends of the Earth’s biggest Big Give target.

Donations go towards supporting the Friends of the Earth 270+ Climate Action Groups across the country who campaign for urgent climate action.

Friends of the Earth use the money to train, provide resources and guide groups to produce their own campaigns to push local and regional leaders to develop and introduce ambitious Climate Action Plans based off of the Friends of the Earth 50 point Action Plan.

Implementation of Climate Action Plans and taking direct action are key now more than ever off the back of COP26, which the charity states was full of ‘empty attention-grabbing promises’. Every pound donated will help support groups to create change in their local area and pile on the pressure to decision makers.

Friends of the Earth are currently holding government to account and calling out and acting against the destructive plans for a $1.15 billion gas mega-project in Mozambique, the new North Sea Cambo Oil Field and a new deep coal mine in Cumbria.

Rod Wood, Managing Director at Community Windpower, said: “We are proud to once again be supporting the brilliant work Friends of the Earth does for taking action on the climate crisis.

“The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021 means our £10,000 donation will go much further in delivering greater action from local and regional campaign groups.

“Community Windpower will continue to work alongside Friends of the Earth to help to save the planet from the climate emergency for the health and benefit of future generations”.

The Big Give Challenge 2021 runs between 12:00pm 30th November and 12:00pm 7th December 2021.
