Haringey Giving Champions for Children £10,00 Target Reached! COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds across London. In Haringey, many of our children and young people need your support to thrive and recover from the pandemic, which has impacted on their physical and mental wellbeing, education and attainment and their social and emotional development Thank you to everyone who has supported the appeal, which has raised £10,000 Thanks to our partners, the Childhood Trust, donations raised were matched between midday on 8th June and midday on 22nd June, up to a total of £10,000. This means that donations will support twice as many children and young people impacted by the pandemic. “Disadvantaged children in London need support now more than ever so we are delighted to be working with Haringey Giving to double all donations made to their appeal. This means that for every pound that people donate - twice the number of children and young people can be supported.” Laurence Guinness, Chief Executive, The Childhood Trust Haringey Giving will use the funds raised to provide small grants of around £1,000 to community groups and charities who are supporting children and young people through the recovery phase of the pandemic. Funds will be distributed through our Together We Can small grants programme and funded projects will enable children and young people to come together to overcome challenges and take action on the things that matter to them.
