MoneySavingExpert Martin Lewis is making £1m available to fund urgent small-charity coronavirus poverty relief

Fri 20 Mar 2020

To try and help Martin is going to release £1,000,000 from his personal charity fund to provide grants of £5,000 to £20,000 to small registered charities, or local arms of bigger charities, across the UK – to help with specific UK coronavirus-related poverty relief projects.

Examples could include foodbanks, charities engaged in community aid, financial advice help and more. The hope is to get the money distributed within the next couple of weeks, and they are looking for projects that are up and running, or are in the process of being set up – as they want to deliver help at speed. 

This fund only applies to specific coronavirus projects.

APPLICATIONS CLOSE AT 11.59pm ON WED 25 MAR 2020
