Charities, schools and churches working together to raise money to feed those in need in Cheltenham due to Covid-19

by #FeedCheltenham in Cheltenham, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

If we get more than our target we'll be able to support more people for longer - essential as no one knows now long this Covid-19 situation will last.

So lpeaes 

  • donate money
  • we'll buy pre-paid supermarket vouchers
  • distribute them to charities and schools 
  • they'll  vouchers to people and families they know are in need 
  • voucher recipients buy the the food and supplies they need

Covid-19 means low income Cheltenham families are already finding life tough. 

Whilst Government may cover 80% of some salaries, for many the lost 20% means real hardship.  For self employed and others it can be even worse.

In response, Cheltenham charities, schools and churches are working together to feed those in need in Cheltenham due to Covid-19, under the '#FeedCheltenham' banner.
