Coronavirus: Donate to Horsham District COVID-19 Appeal
Please support our local volunteers who are working in Horsham District Community Volunteer Hubs. Volunteers are providing friendly phone calls and buying and delivering essential food and medicines to vulnerable people who are self-isolating.
To give £20 by mobile, just text HUBS to 70085. Texts cost £20 (the donation) plus one standard rate message.
You can donate by debit or credit card using the button below.
If you pay tax the value of your donation will be increased if you take the Gift Aid option.
To ensure every vulnerable resident gets the essential items they need, we need to raise £10,000 by the end of May 2020.
What are the community volunteer hubs?
The Community Volunteer Hubs have been established by local community groups, parish and neighbourhood councils, social media groups and Horsham District Council for the vulnerable of the Horsham District.
The Hubs are manned by volunteers, giving practical help such as going for shopping and medicines, and providing emotional support, with friendly phone calls for those who are isolated at home.
As Horsham Town Centre is the largest area in the District with the highest population, the Council are managing the volunteer hub for the town directly in collaboration with other voluntary and community organisations.
What happens with my donation?
The money you give will be used by the local community hubs and a range of local charities and support services (including Horsham Matters) to support the most vulnerable people in our communities. They use the donations in various ways, including stocking food banks for those who need essential items, and providing mobile phones and numbers for helplines.
The appeal is supported by Horsham District Council and donations are processed by The Hub Beeding and given directly to the Community Hubs and Horsham Matters where the help is needed.
