Because of your generosity, we smashed our fundraising target, receiving over £42,000! Thank you so much to everyone who took part, and especially to our match-pledgers and the Saturday Hospital Fund who doubled what was given.

We now have so much more to spend towards finding treatments and a cure for the ataxias, as we continue to invest in scientific research, whilst providing support for our community. 

Ataxia UK will be taking part in next year’s Big Give challenge. We want to reach even higher, but will need pledgers who are happy to match-fundraise our income to do so. If you’d like to match a certain amount, then please get in touch with us at

Missed the Big Give? No problem! You can still make a Christmas donation to Ataxia UK by giving us a call on 020 7582 1444, donating online or popping a cheque in the post (Ataxia UK, 12 Broadbent Close, London, N6 5JW). We are incredibly grateful for all the donations we receive.
