This project was funded on 14 May 2020!

Tunbridge Wells Borough Council has launched the 'Lend a Hand for Tunbridge Wells' crowdfunding appeal to support organisations throughout the borough helping those most vulnerable during the coronavirus crisis. We’ve had a fantastic response from residents volunteering, and we know that many more of you want to do something to help too. Here you can help your community by donating to provide additional support for those who are most in need. Your support and generosity are crucial now more than ever, help us help them.

What we'll deliver:

  • Support for Nourish Community Foodbank, providing food supplies across the borough
  • Support for Mental Health Resource, providing social contact via phone or online
  • Support for Age UK Tunbridge Wells, providing support for the elderly in the borough

Why it's a great idea:

Access to food banks, mental health support and looking after the elderly is key at this time. Not everyone can get help from friends, family or neighbours and those most vulnerable deserve our care, respect and help, both now and into the future after the immediate crisis has passed.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchase Food Supplies
  • Consolidate Phone and Online Support Services
