Cumbria Covid-19 Response Fund

Why we need your help

We have set up a fund to help charitable groups deal with emerging issues from Coronavirus (COVID-19).
 
As the virus spreads across the county, those who are vulnerable will be hardest hit and in times of crisis, many people turn to charities for support.
 
Like other sectors, Cumbria’s charitable organisations are likely to face challenges in the coming weeks and months.
 
There will be an increase in demand for their services while they are already under resourced and at capacity, with some having to completely change the way they operate. Many are reliant on volunteers and will struggle if they must self-isolate, become ill or have caring responsibilities. Many will also see a drop in their income due to cancelled fundraising events and reduced rental and activity income.
 
The Cumbria COVID-19 Response Fund will provide funding to charitable projects across the county who are supporting people affected by the deadly virus to help them deal with emerging issues from Coronavirus.
 
Cumbria Community Foundation has contributed £100,000 to the Fund.
 
We aim to provide support for the following (this is not an exhaustive list):
  • support activities that help vulnerable people self-isolating
  • community response coordination
  • volunteer costs
  • additional costs of working remotely and adapting services delivered in the wider community
  • support for foodbanks and organisations working to combat child hunger
  • support to counter the loss of contract income and fundraising for organisations providing support for vulnerable groups

I'm sending you 10% of my monthly sales for the rest of this year as a contribution to all that CCF does for our communities. I'm particularly keen for my donation to help those in the farming community where possible.
