Supporting our communities

How we're helping support those who need it most

The Coronavirus outbreak is the most significant challenge our community has faced for generations.

We're proud to be at the heart of our local community, and we want to do as much as we can to help those who need it most.

That’s why we've taken the decision to pause our usual programme of community support so we can introduce some emergency support for our community.

So far we have donated

£75,000

to local community groups to support the response to Coronavirus

Foodbanks

£45,000

This will be split across the 22 foodbanks in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex who we currently support.

 

This money will be used by these groups to secure food for those who need it most.

 

Age UK

£18,000

Shared by Age UK Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.

 

Funding will be used to provide food and support to vulnerable older people across our region.

 

Community Foundations

£12,000

Shared amongst Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex Community Foundations local Coronavirus Response Funds.

This will help direct money to community groups who need it most as part of a
co-ordinated response.

Responding to the impact of Coronavirus will be a marathon, not a sprint.

We're committed to doing everything we can to supporting our colleagues, customers and communities.

This is just the start of the support we intend to offer.

We're reviewing what we can do on a regular basis as the situation develops. Keep an eye on this page for more information.
