The Covid Community Campaign launched on 8 December 2020.
It's a London-wide campaign and collaboration between London Councils, the Mayor of London and Dame Louise Casey in partnership with FareShare, Magic Breakfast, the Trussell Trust, and Social Bite, as well as other community, business and civil society organisations.
They are united in the belief that no child should go hungry, no parent should go hungry to feed their child, and no one should be left struggling and without anywhere to turn.
They are asking people to join the campaign, dig deep and give what they can to help others this winter.
Proceeds raised from the Covid Community Campaign will be shared between the partners above (FareShare, The Trussell Trust, Magic Breakfast and Social Bite) to distribute London-wide and ensure those who need help are supported until March 2021.
Richmond has joined the campaign and will be one of the boroughs to receive a share of donations to local charities. One-fifth of all proceeds from the campaign will be shared between local participating boroughs.
People can give their money, their time or their food locally if they prefer - the ask is to give what you can to help ensure no one is left without the support they need this Winter.
