Your gift to the Encephalitis Society will do twice as much good if you take part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge between November 28 and December 5.

This is a "double your donation" campaign where if you give £10, the Encephalitis Society can receive DOUBLE - and what a Christmas gift to us that would be for people who have been affected by encephalitis.

Last year's campaign raised £7.2m for 332 UK charities in just seven days and we think that encephalitis is important enough to receive a share of those gifts too.

Members David and Angela Mills and The Hospital Saturday Fund have kindly pledged £2,500 which means that the first £2,500 that is donated is guaranteed to be doubled to £5,000!

...... UPDATE ..... Thanks to your generosity we have reached our £5,000 target and have now DOUBLED it! Help us to do twice as much good this Christmas by making a donation at

Examples of the life-changing resources which are vital to survivors and their families as they rebuild their lives following encephalitis, can be seen by clicking on the photograph below.

Your donation means we can help more families to receive the information and support that they urgently need.
