Beverley Charity Gives Joy to Families During Covid-19 Crisis

The Morrisons Foundation has donated £5,000 to Bundles of Joy, a local charity that helps vulnerable families with young children across the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The support from the Morrisons Foundation will help the charity respond to the huge increase in demand on their services following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. The donation will provide essential child care items to families who may otherwise not be able to afford these.  These include toiletries, clothes, bottles, toys, mattresses, highchairs and safety gates will be offered to vulnerable families throughout the region.

Samantha Watson, Fundraising Coordinator was thrilled to receive the donation,  “On behalf of Bundles of Joy I would like to say a huge thank you for the £5,000 grant from the Morrisons Foundation.”

“This amount will allow us to purchase items for families living in poverty due to COVID-19. During these uncertain times a lot of people in our community need to turn to charities for help, and that’s where we step in. This money will make a difference to hundreds of people.’

Joe Scargill, Morrisons Foundation Specialist said “I’m extremely happy we’re able to provide this grant to Bundles of Joy. Families have had to cope with so much during this crisis and it’s vitally important that our donation will go some way in easing that stress. Helping local charities is at the heart of what the Foundation is all about and I’m so happy that we can provide this grant.”

The Morrisons Foundation was set up by Morrisons supermarket in 2015 and awards grants for charity projects which help improve people’s lives.  Since launching over £29 million has been donated to hundreds of charities across England, Scotland and Wales.
