Maidstone Cares is crowdfunding to support our most vulnerable residents across the Borough of Maidstone through the Covid-19 crisis

Maidstone Delivery stage

pledged of £10,931

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Maidstone Borough Council has launched “Maidstone Cares” crowdfunding appeal to support organisations that are helping our most vulnerable residents during the Coronavirus crisis. So many residents are already helping and supporting neighbours, family and friends and we are really appreciative of this. Here you can help your community by donating to provide additional support to those most in need. Please give generously so we can help as many people as possible.

What we'll deliver:

  • Support for foodbanks who are providing food for families and individuals who need support across the Borough
  • Support for Involve who are providing befriending and other support to vulnerable residents
  • Support for the Heart of Kent Hospice

Why it's a great idea:

The money raised will ensure foodbanks have enough food to feed families and individuals who may go without as this crisis continues. The charity organisations support through befriending services for those who are isolated and alone.

Steps to get it done:

  • Run and promote crowdfunding campaign
  • Purchase food supplies
  • Provide financial support to voluntary organisations who are working across our Borough
