These are worrying times for everyone.
They are particularly difficult for residents and families who have already run out of money, some of whom also have children at home needing to be fed.
We are very proud of our community and the way it pulls together and helps those in need and now, more than ever, is the time for that!
Heals of Malmesbury is our local charity that helps and supports vulnerable local people and families. Heals has stepped up in this emergency to do even more to help those who need it now as well as those that soon will. None of us know how long this crisis will last. We do not want to see any local people not receiving basic essentials or resorting to payday loans and getting into serious debt just to survive.
Therefore, an Emergency Hardship Fund has been set up, managed by Heals - which is a registered charity - with our full support. It will aim to help pay essential bills for local residents and meet other urgent needs.
Please do support this fund if you can. This is best done by donating online through Local giving here:
If that is not possible, you can make a bank transfer to the Malmesbury Area Covid-19 Emergency Hardship Fund, account number 21527088, sort code 40 31-07
Or, post a cheque - made payable to ‘Heals’ - to Heals, Malmesbury Town Hall, Cross Hayes, Malmesbury, SN16 9BZ
Please support this appeal and be as generous as you can.
