#GivingTuesdayNow, happening on 5th May, is a global day of generosity and unity, a day to come together and give back in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, no matter who or where we are. A reminder that we have the power to make a positive change in the lives of others.
Sustainable Merton has seen an amazing amount of giving through our 2.6 Challenge and as #GivingTuesday approaches and our challenges are almost complete, we are calling on our wonderful community to get behind us for our final push!
We've exceeded our target but we're not stopping there! We want to raise £500 for Merton's Community Fridge so that we can directly aid those living in isolation and/or food poverty through the distribution of free surplus fresh food. Please give a little if you can 💙
