Next week, the Cartoon Museum in London is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge.
This means that for a limited period donations to the museum will be matched, making all contributions go further. Anita O’Brien, the curator, explains all in the above YouTube video.
The museum said: “For a limited time only, online donations are matched by other funders on a first come, first served basis, so timing is of the essence. Every £5 that you give could be worth £10. Matched funds will be released at 10am on the morning of 5, 6 and 7 December and we are asking you to donate at that time before the match-funding runs out.”
The money will fund the Cartoons and Comics for All project, which aims to bring new visitors to the museum and provide free events and sessions for schools.

The museum is currently showing an exhibition by R.S. Sherriffs. The gloom of winter will be brightened by Bring Me Laughter on 7 January, followed by a must-see Spitting Image exhibition on 26 February. See the website for details.
