Story

My name is David Khalil, a watch dealer and a youtube content creator. Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus Covid-19 has become serious in the UK and people began panic buying food, the only thing I was thinking about is how fortunate some of us are to have a roof over our heads and food on our plate. Watching the news, I realised the increased pressure and demand on food banks in the UK at this time and started thinking of doing a fundraiser. As good as the idea sounds, I knew that my channel is not big enough to pull it off by my self and if I don't ask for help then it will remain as just "a good idea" so I reached out to a good friend that I trust to help me on this cause, Paul Thorpe who is a former watch dealer, a youtube content creator and someone who has a large influence on the watch community. It did not take much convincing, in fact Paul did not let me finish my sentence and just said "I'm in".

Many have lost their jobs during this crisis and many of them have a family consisting of young children that they need to feed.

This is a cause that we feel very strongly about and its the absolute basics that is needed for survival, food on your plate!

We hope the watch community can find it in their hearts to make a donation whether small or large to help feed as many vulnerable people and children that have been affected by this outbreak.

We have set a goal of £25,000 but we are hoping this would be the minimum and we are hoping we can exceed it by miles.

Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of The Trussell Trust and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
