This Christmas we are inviting you to take part in our very own festive game of pass the parcel...with a twist!

We're asking you to help support the Lawscot Foundation by making a donation and nominating or "passing the parcel" to someone else to do the same - and in doing so, you might even win a prize!

Our festive campaign this year is designed to be a little fun for everyone involved, harking back to the childhood game and joy of ripping the paper off the parcel in the hope of finding a prize! But your donations will make a vital difference to our work, in what has been an extremely challenging year for everyone - helping to spread the gift of university education to talented students from less-advantaged backgrounds, aiming to be the legal stars of tomorrow.

With young people from less-advantaged backgrounds being the hardest hit by the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, these incredible, deserving students need our and your support now, more than ever. As with all charities, our fundraising has been significantly impacted this year, so every penny you donate is massively appreciated and will help us continue to support more of these inspiring young people.

This year, we're aiming to raise £2,500 - enough to fund one student through an entire year of university.

So, please have fun, take part in our festive game and help give the gift of education this Christmas!

How do you take part?

Getting involved in Pass the Parcel is easy!

1. Donate through our fundraising page. Remember to tick 'Pass the Parcel' so we can keep track of your donation.
