Tesco Bags of Help Fund

Tesco Bags of Help is responding to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis by setting up a new short-term fund to support local communities. Due to the need to respond quickly to the emergency we have created a streamlined application process and payment process to make it easier to get funds distributed quickly. If your application is successful the fund will provide a single payment award of £500 to organisations who are supporting vulnerable groups. The programme is set up to support organisational need in this time of crisis rather than fund specific projects.

Age UK Corona Virus Letter Friends Appeal

Age UK has launched their Coronavirus Letter Friends Appeal.

The appeal is asking people to write a letter to an anonymous older person isolated at home. People can send their letters to Age UK who then distribute them to the older people and provides them with something positive and friendly within the post.

The letter also gives a real boost and helps older people and older carers not to feel so abandoned.
