Bucks coronavirus fund set up to help the vulnerable

A fund to support the vulnerable in Buckinghamshire during the coronavirus pandemic has been created. 

Heart of Bucks has launched the Bucks Coronavirus Response Appeal to help support people and charities during this time. 

The group recognise that it is a difficult time for everyone, but especially the vulnerable.

To try and help they have created a fund to support people and charities in Buckinghamshire who are most affected as a result of COVID-19.

People donating to the appeal will be supporting Buckinghamshire residents who are struggling, whether it be to make essential household payments, living through a short term crisis or experiencing hardship. 

Heart of Bucks will identify these households by connecting with local charities and working in partnership to ensure the funds go where they are most needed. 

Catherine for HoB explains why they created the fund:

"It's affecting us all. We are all facing fears of getting ill ourselves, of looking after the people closes to us. And plenty of people are worried about losing income in the process of taking the vital precautions against the virus that the government are recommending. 

"It's essentially a fund to support the most affected and vulnerable in this crisis. We will be identifying the households who require the most help as a result of the coronavirus.

"Of course what we are hoping is to get as many donations as possible so we can help as many local people and charities as possible and support them at this difficult time when we all don't know what is coming next."

People wanting to donate can do through their online page or through cheques made payable to ‘Heart of Bucks’ to: Heart of Bucks COVID-19 Appeal, Sunley House (4th floor), Oxford Road, Aylesbury, Bucks, HP19 8FQ.
