The Covid-19 pandemic has seen most of our fundraising activities put on hold, with worrying consequences for our finances. However, we’ve been lucky enough to be awarded a grant of £2,500 from the Charities Aid Foundation’s Coronavirus Emergency Fund. This will help to cover this shortfall and keep us operational.
Our Chair, Andy Brelsford, commented: “Our team has continued to be available to respond to callouts 24/7 throughout the lockdown period and at a time when we have been unable to conduct our normal fundraising activities so we are extremely grateful to the Charities Aid Foundation for this grant. This will help with some of the costs we have incurred in adapting our services to cope with Covid-19.”
