Young Voices selected Place2Be as its official charity for Young Voices’ 25th anniversary concert series, which aimed to raise over £40,000 to support the emotional wellbeing of young people.
Together, Young Voices (the largest children’s choir concerts in the world) and Place2Be (improving children’s mental health in schools across the UK) are raising awareness and funding to support the emotional and mental wellbeing of young people across the UK. They used Text Giving to attract donors at concerts up and down the country.
The Young Voices choir is made up of over 150,000 primary school children with performances planned at some of the UK’s biggest and best venues throughout April and May 2022. Starting at Sheffield’s FlyDSA Arena, the choir will perform across the UK, in Birmingham, London and Manchester.
“It’s been fantastic to be able to offer Text Giving as a way for Young Voices audiences to support Place2Be, and we’re thrilled with how much we’ve been able to raise in this way! Donr make the whole process so simple for both the charity and donors and we’ll definitely be using it again next year!"
The concerts attracted donors up and down the country, with over 1000 people donating by Text Giving.
Throughout April and May, the partnership raised over £5000 through Text Giving.
Place2Be and Young Voices raised over £40,000 throughout the campaign.
