We started the goodybank journey 6 weeks back with our community to lend a helping hand during the COVID-19 pandemic. In these 6 weeks we’ve collectively managed to support 3121 members and 31,000 people across the country. goodybank has had such a massive impact on so many lives in such a short span.
Here’s a peek of how the funds raised are distributed across the UK this week
These are the donations we’ve received this week
The donations are helping so many causes, here is an account from some of the communities that are being supported.
The Crumbs Project, Bournemouth
This charity helps vulnerable adults with employability skills through catering. They support 80 vulnerable adults and elderly individuals per week in Bournemouth. At present they have adapted what they do and are running a voluntary service to help get food to vulnerable adults in isolation.
How are they using the funds?
The grant is being used for food provision, basic essentials, practical and emotional support, and running costs
Milton Keynes Irish Welfare Support Group
This lunch club in Milton Keynes under normal circumstances provides hot food, a safe and social environment for local people every week. They support up to 60 elderly people per week in Milton Keynes. Like many charities, they have adapted their service in response to the virus outbreak and are providing emergency services.
These are just some of the stories from the local communities.
