COVID-19 community initiative crowdfunding enters final week

17 December 2020

A Council-led community crowdfunding campaign, 'Let's Turn This Around', has reached its goal with six days left to go - but additional pledges are still being sought in order to deliver as much funding as possible to local community initiatives.

The campaign was set up in response to depletion of Cheshire West & Chester Council's initial Community Response Fund that was helping community groups to assist with issues such as food poverty, isolation, and mental health due to the impact of COVID-19.

The Council begin the campaign by pledging £50,000, and additional pledges from residents, businesses and local Councillors has now seen the campaign break its £80,000 target.

However, the campaign still has six days to run, and any further pledges will still be vital in providing additional assistance to those who need it.
