The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 has been a terrible time for so many people, so the trustees of the Living by Giving Trust decided to help in a small way: by donating a grant of £100 to charities or causes local to them. Though these are only small grants, they can mean a huge amount to local charities.
One of our founding trustees, Matt Betts lives in Bournemouth, Dorset and with the blessing of other trustees was able to donate £100 to three charities in the area: Macmillan Caring Locally, Questa Voce and the local foodbank. In these difficult times, all three local charities very much appreciated these donations.
Another trustee, Sarah Keaney was able to donate £100 to a local initiative in Enfield called ‘Love Your Doorstep’, which supports many people in the area in these difficult times of job losses and financial struggles. At the last count, the initiative had raised over £4,000!
Finally trustee, Sadie Vile was able to donate £200 to a local community charity in Hertfordshire. More details soon!
It’s thanks to you, our supporters, that we are able to do this – so thank you very much and please stay safe!
