COVID-19 Fund: Let's Turn This Around!

Our communities have been hit hard by COVID-19 and we have been blown away by the support that community initiatives have provided our residents. Groups across Cheshire West and Chester have been providing invaluable services throughout the pandemic, helping make sure everyone has been able to receive the support they need.

Pledging towards our campaign will help us to continue to support the vital work of organisations combatting food poverty, social isolation, poor mental health, financial hardship and much more. By working together, we can provide funding for community initiatives #letsturnthisaround
