Your community needs your help now.
During these unprecedented times it has never been more important to look after the most vulnerable in our communities, and local charities working hard on the ground across Norfolk are absolutely essential to keeping vulnerable people safe and well through this crisis. We’ve been overwhelmed by offers from people who want to step up and take action to help others, but right now these organisations desperately need funding to continue their work. Now is a critical time to get involved by donating to our Covid-19 Community Response Fund to enable them to continue and expand their work.
These vital groups are:
• getting food to people who are isolated and in greatest need
• protecting our most vulnerable children while schools are closed
• helping people who have recently left hospital to recover at home
• supporting people with their mental wellbeing
• helping people who are struggling with debt.
Without the support of these organisations, the situation locally would be even more critical, but they need funding now to continue.
By donating to our Covid-19 Community Response Fund today you will help charities and voluntary groups to take action where it is needed most to provide essential care and support – now, and in the months ahead.
You will have seen that the National Emergencies Trust has also set up an emergency fund to help people in their communities through local Community Foundations, who are routing funds to where they are most needed. Patron HRH Prince William is urging individuals and businesses to donate, which will work alongside our local fundraising to meet the most pressing community needs.
Provide critical support to your local community today
We need your help today to support these groups with essential funds so they can reach the most vulnerable locally, and to support the volunteer response. Any donation you are able to make to the Covid-19 Community Response Fund will make a real difference.
