The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

What can you give to help your neighbours most in need?

Fowey is an incredibly diverse community. There is no doubt it is a beautiful place. However, its people are integral to Fowey’s identity; we are collectively what makes Fowey such a great place and community. At this time when normal life has been disrupted and suspended many will be isolated and the finances of young families and our most vulnerable will be stretched. It is a time for us to support each other and provide for the most in need around us.

This long-term fundraising will go alongside community volunteering. There are young families in our community with parents who have zero-hour contracts, yet they still need to feed their children. There are older people reliant on pensions they can‘t access. We can all probably think of a neighbour who will be affected in other ways.

This initial target is the equivalent of £7 per person if everyone in Fowey donated... just two cups of coffee! Why not give more?!

All money raised will go towards those who need it most. Funds will be used for food, necessary household goods and for families who have young children and the many pressures they will experience over the coming months.

The funds will be overseen by Fowey Church and administered through an existing charitable trust (John John), which is for the benefit of those who are most in need in Fowey. Fund administration will be in accordance with the Charity Commission.

A special thanks to all in the community who are already behind this. Also a huge thanks to Fowey Isolation Support and all the volunteers who are the helping hands in our community.

We welcome your generosity!

Rev. Ian Gulland- Fowey Church

      I cut my own hair today because my hairdresser isn't open yet, so I am donating this money. Very stressful times for a lot of people.

      I cut my own hair today as my hairdresser isn't open yet, so can donate saved hairdressing fees. Difficult times for a lot of people.

      We are "second home" owners in Fowey but have a strong sense of commitment to the local community. We hope this donation will go some way to help the most needy.
