MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO - SAM NURSE
Money Advice Hub is a local not for profit advice delivery partner of the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk, we work alongside other free advice charities such as Shelter, Pandora and Voluntary Norfolk to help local residents with debt, money, housing, domestic abuse and employment problems. Since the COVID lockdown, the local council has led a COVID Response Task force with the aim to help its local residents as far as possible to cope with the lockdown and financial and social pressures.
KING'S LYNN & WEST NORFOLK COVID RESPONSE TASK FORCE
As a task force, we recognise that much of the advice and support available is online and that not all of our residents have online access. We also appreciate that people are busy coping with their current life pressures at home and in the workplace. In addition, we seek to plan ahead and consider the ongoing effects of breathing space and government relief ending. We would therefore like to organise a mass household leaflet drop and advice awareness campaign. We already have a project manager and collective knowledgable resources to hand to donate to this campaign but we do need your donations to fund the leaflet drop. The more we raise, the more households we can reach, the more people we can help. We are also planning to back this campaign up in the local press.
We call upon local employers and organisations with charitable funds to please donate to this local effort. For individuals, we welcome any donations that you can make but only if you can afford to donate. If there are any printing organisations that would like to sponsor and donate their services, we would like to hear from you too.
HOW WILL THE FUND BE SPENT?
All of the proceeds will go directly to publishing and printing advice & information leaflets and the cost involved in delivering them through doors. If the fundraising is more successful than we hope, we will use any remaining funding to extend the free advice services we already provide.
Money Advice Hub has published a public fundraising page on its website to keep up to date with this campaign.
