Covid Thornbury Rotary Local COVID-19 Appeal
URGENT appeal for donations to help local organisations
This appeal is established to deliver grants quickly to small community groups, voluntary organisations, and charities in the Thornbury area who are finding it difficult during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The current situation puts a significant strain on these organisations, causing real problems. Many are finding their resources stretched by unprecedented demands on their services. They have been starved of their traditional sources of funding, their ability to raise funds is severely restricted, and the effects of COVID-19 will be felt long after the pandemic has subsided
Your donations will help those most in need in our community. The number and size of these grants will depend on your generosity. All funds will be donated to local charities and organisations.
Please DONATE NOW by clicking the Virgin MoneyGiving icon
 Click the"Rainbow" icon to see how to apply for a grant.
