SUPPORT FOR CHARITABLE ORGANISATIONS DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
The governors of St Edmunds Trust are wanting to support charitable organisations during the pandemic, and are willing to make donations to organisations that are supporting people who have health and medical needs. The usual three-month deadlines are being relaxed in order for organisations to apply and obtain funding quickly to support their beneficiaries.
Please use the application form, or alternatively contact Hazel Pidsley e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your project.
