For the past six weeks Alpkit Foundation has been entirely focused on supporting grassroots projects responding to the Covid-19 crisis.
Many families are struggling to put food on the table. There's a huge need for essential supplies. Food charities are under enormous strain.
We're proud that Alpkit has been making food available to people at a local level. Thank you, it's making a real difference to the vulnerable, self-isolating, elderly and full-time carers who can't get out to buy essentials. Our focus means we're helping families, building local resilience and supporting small businesses.
With more money we can achieve more. This our opportunity to look back in the future and know we made a difference when it mattered most.
If you can, please make a donation direct to Alpkit Foundation.
