By Jill Dando News

The chosen charity for a Somerset set of schools has already hit nearly £16,000 for their Big Give Christmas Challenge

The MPS Society, which provides brilliant support to families affected by rare genetic conditions, has seen donations flooding from across the country in just a few days.

The charity, backed by The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT), joined the The Big Give Christmas Challenge on the 1st of December and the campaign will run until 12noon on 8th December.

All their money raised up to £15,000 target was doubled – and now the money keeps rolling in.

The TPLT schools in Weston-super-Mare, Highbridge in Burnham and other parts of Somerset are this year helping The MPS Society, after raising huge sums for charity over the years including for In Charley’s Memory and Weston Hospicecare.

Becky Beeson of The MPS Society said: “We are so thrilled with all the donations so far and the fact that our target is doubled, is a real special boost this Christmas time. Every single pound that people can give is so much appreciated.“

The schools in TPLT are Worle Community School Academy, Priory Community School Academy, The King Alfred School Academy, St Anne’s Church Academy, Castle Batch School Academy and Pawlett Primary School Academy.

Every year The MPS Society reach 1,500 families and recently experienced a 12.6% increase in demand for their services. The charity raises money and awareness of these conditions through fundraising, information, research and support.
