7 weeks back we began the goodybank journey with our giffgaff community to help members and communities in need across the country and the impact has been immense.

Here is what our partners’ Neighbourly have to say about the generosity of our members.

Local charities and community causes have come under immense pressure in recent weeks and have had to rapidly adapt their services in a way that's never been done before in order to help those most affected by the crisis. Donations to the Neighbourly Community Fund from giffgaff and its members have delivered essential help quickly to where it's needed most - at the heart of our local neighbourhoods. The funding has provided food parcels and care packages as well as support to keep those who are isolated still feel connected. It's fantastic to see what we've collectively been able to achieve, there's a real sense of community building. Thank you to giffgaff members for continuing to support the fund in the coming months.Steve Butterworth CEO, Neighbourly
