If Ray Winstone asks you to give money. Maybe you should & fast ;)
The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British people. 1 in 20 people have lost their jobs already and over a million people have signed up for Universal Credit in the last 2 weeks. Many banks are not properly helping their customers and most government funding will takes months to activate. What are the British people suppose to do in the meantime? They need help now.
We have come together to raise an Emergency Fund to help those in need. Whether it is some extra cash to buy groceries, cover any outstanding bills or to help pay the rent. Once this money has been raised we will give out small grants of up to £500 per month to help those who apply.
We will be completely transparent with who receives the money, how much, when & what for via an open document anyone can view or ask to view at any time.
Lets all come together in this time and help those most in need. Select an amount to donate or enter whatever amount you would like to donate.
