Thanks to your incredible support, we managed to raise £2,190 for this year’s initiative, which will be split equally between Mind and India COVID Crisis charities.
Thank you to our team and friends of the site who took part this year with fundraisers, and to all of you who supported us along the way.
We have now raised over £8,900 for charities since our initiative’s inception in 2018.
Monday 10 May – Friday 11 June
Our annual JumpCut Charity Initiative returns for its 3rd year as we once again set out to raise money for charities. Since the initiative’s inception, we’ve raised over £6700 for a number of charities, including The Trussell Trust, Black Lives Matter, MediCinema, Great Ormand Street Hospital, Tenovus Cancer Care and more.
This year our team has chosen to support MIND and India COVID Crisis charities – and our fundraisers will be running from Monday 10 May – Friday 11 June. The team will be doing various fundraisers again this year, including 24 live streams, movie marathons, knit-a-thons, hiking, and more!
Anyone who donates over £10 will be entered into a raffle we will draw at the end of this year’s initiative and we will be giving away DVDs, blu-rays, homemade knitted hats made during our fundraisers, and more!
