Bede's Covid-19 Hardship Fund

During these uncertain times we are doing what we can to provide financial support to those parents who find themselves with unforeseen challenges. 

Thankfully many of us have managed to adapt to the changes the pandemic has presented and life has continued with few challenges. However there are some who have faced significant upset and unexpected hardship and the impact of Covid-19 continues. 

To this end, Bede's is seeking support to build a Covid-19 Hardship Fund to help those families who are experiencing financial difficulties as a direct result of the Coronavirus pandemic. We hope those who are able will support our appeal and give children much needed continuity at this difficult time.

In these challenging times, if we can be of some small assistance to those in our closest communities less fortunate than ourselves, we are happy to help.
