Woah, that’s fucking awesome. Well done everybody.
I was going to launch a new fundraising thing for the fund tonight too! Reckon I should still or wait a while?
I honestly don’t know pal, use your best judgement on that
Don’t think we can have too much in the fund at the minute tbh.
Be nice to have something to do as well.
Need to do a bit more planning first but I think you’re right.
I think the more in the fund the better tbh. Speaking for myself, I’ve been furloughed since Monday and while I know I’ll get my full pay for March next week, it’s anyone’s guess what happens in April and I’m pretty sure I won’t be the only one here in that boat. Reckon find requests could go up a lot in a month or so. (And I’ll contribute to your new fundraiser while I’ve got the cash this month, promise!)
This fund is the single best thing to come from these boards existing. So many people are never more than a couple of bits of bad luck away from being potless. Even when you have a bit stashed away so much can change through losing your job, a dip in your health or an accident.
Howay the lads.
the fund received 20 donations & made 4 grants, none of which were to a committee member, it is currently in surplus.
the balance is £3627.45
forgot to mention. if you’re uncomfortable taking a grant for any reason, it’s possible to use the fund for a 0% loan.
