COVID 19 Appeal

Why we need your help

UPDATE 30th March 2020

We are delighted to announce that, thanks to the incredible generosity of Cadogan Estates and the Rockspring Charitable Trust, the next £100,000 raised for our Covid-19 Appeal will be MATCHED.  In other words, your gift will be doubled, enabling us to reach even more local partners with support through the pandemic and beyond.

As the Covid-19 pandemic dominates all our thoughts, I wanted to let you know how it is affecting our work with vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community, and how you can help.

The impact on local projects and partners is significant and growing.  Not only is fundraising income lost through cancellation of events, but many scheduled group activities are now being replaced with more expensive one to one services such as home visits.  6 distribution centres have been set up across the borough by a partnership of voluntary sector organisations to take donations of food and essential supplies, which will be sent out as care packages to those in most need.

We are also concerned about the safety of individuals and families who are isolating in households which are difficult and potentially violent, and the requirement to adapt or create services to minimise their risk. 

We are launching our Covid-19 Appeal for K+C, to support local partners as they aim to meet the needs of the most vulnerable in our community during the pandemic and as they rebuild services over the longer-term. 

Thanks to the incredible generosity of  Julia and Hans Rausing the first £50,000 we have raised has been matched, doubling the generous donations we received.

£25 could fund a starter pack of essential supplies for one vulnerable person.

100% of the money raised through this appeal will be spent on projects and partners delivering frontline services to those affected by Covid-19 in our borough.

Thank you so much for your support and we hope you are all staying safe and well in this very difficult time.

With best wishes
