This year, Off The Record is getting involved with a new event, which we believe will change the way we all experience the festive season, shifting the focus of December from buying to giving.

On 2 December 2014, we will celebrate #GivingTuesday, a global campaign, aiming to mark the beginning of a month of charity! Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering your time or just spreading the word, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.

What’s the plan? We want to raise funds and awareness for Off The Record’s work in Bath and North-East Somerset, supporting young people in our community when times get tough.


How can you get involved with #GivingTuesday?


We rely on support from our community to provide free and confidential counselling for local young people. We invite you humbly to make a donation on #GivingTuesday. £10 can help provide a counselling session for a distressed child or young person. You can donate here.


Show your support

All of us at team Off The Record will be wearing a red item of clothing on Tuesday 2 December to show our support for Off The Record. Will you join us? Tell us what you are up to via @OTRBANES.  Hashtag your photo / post / tweet / #unselfie or #givingtuesday and join the online conversation.

P.S. Nothing gets you in the mood for a very merry December like wearing a cosy red scarf and hat does!


Get creative

We invite you to go wild and get involved with #givingtuesday in your own way!  We will support your fundraising idea on our website, as well as our facebook and twitter pages.
