UK CHARITY WEEK founder, Lee B. Rayment has made an urgent call for local charities up and down the country to come together quickly in readiness of coronavirus cases rising further in their counties.
Mr Rayment, who founded UK Charity Week, the national charity campaign that has enabled charities to raise millions for their good causes across the UK, said:
“Our country is blessed with some outstanding charitable organisations that I fear will either go out of service or freeze in the months ahead. They need to all get their heads together locally and act very quickly.”
In his impassioned plea, he added: “If we can get a single appeal funds in our regional areas to pool all the finances and services with some degree of coordination sooner rather than later, we can be better prepared and proactive. The local communities need to rightly feel as though any donations and support are being distributed immediately and not sat on until talk turns into action.”
