Weʼre raising £10,000 to create a Covid-19 Emergency Fund for Lytchett Matravers residents
- Lytchett Matravers, Dorset
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Lytchett Matravers Angels Community Support Group have been supporting the vulnerable residents of Lytchett Matravers through the coronavirus pandemic. We are now recognised as the LM Angels.
Our Village has many elderly people that are isolating due to being clinically vulnerable and families in Lytchett Matravers who may have been impacted by the stringent closure of workplaces , such as being furloughed or may be self employed are now out of work and facing financial hardship until the government support can be delivered.
We are a team of committed, dedicated volunteers who can help the community by:
Assisting with shopping/prescriptions
Telephone Check in & Chats for those feeling lonely
Signposting to charities/support organisations
Food Bank & supplies
Support for families with children
It appears that we may well be facing a long haul with the Coronavirus and this is impacting on everyone's daily lives . Grant applications are becoming over subscribed and being frozen until more government funds are available. We want to continue our service provision for the months that are ahead of us so its vital we have additional funds to keep us moving forward.
How can you help? - We appreciate people would like to show their gratitude for the support they receive and we thank you from our hearts for your generosity. We have become the heartbeat of the community and you can help by making a donation to our Community Fund . Your funds will boost the village food bank, provide shopping grants to needy families, support with children's educational needs and can also help our amazing volunteers get around to provide these services for our residents.
When we can finally get back to some normality and people are no longer requiring provisions then if there are any remaining funds once the crisis has passed, these will be donated to other local charity(ies) that are able to offer similar aid or can be applied to an extension of a community project within the village that gives ongoing support to the community.
