“The greatness of a community can most accurately be measured by the compassionate actions of its members” - Coretta Scott King

goodybank is a great example of that where members have continuously shown support to so many diverse communities across the country in such a short span.

This is how the community funds have been distributed across communities this week

Snapshot of how the funds contributed to the community funds are being distributed. £1million+ total collaborative fund. 2,500+ projects supported.

Here are stories from two diverse communities we’ve supported this week.

Diversity Lewes

A charity that celebrates diversity and runs programmes and services in and around Lewes to raise awareness on the social issues affecting the community. They support around 80 people per week.

How are they using the funds?

The donation will assist in buying PPE for our volunteers and allow the coordination of projects within the Lewes district that includes Refugees, Asylum seekers and BAME members of the community to access information on Covid-19 and services like food banks.

Nations Africa Centre
