News Christmas Kindness Community kindness at Christmas Time This year has been a tricky year for fundraising, with so many funders pausing or focusing on key areas during the pandemic, it has meant that many charities have been unable to access the usual grants. Fortunatley, we have still achieved some positive outcomes and secured support from Trusts and Foundations, which has helped us navigate the pandemic, especially in the areas of Personal Protection Equipment and Mental Health. However, the communities in which Amicus Trust operates have continued to show their kindness and generosity and support to service users. In addition to vouchers and foods given by ASDA and Tesco, donations included food boxes from All Nations Church Bedford, Parvale and 2 televisions and Christmas dinners from other members of the community. The residents at project 17 were also given a £300 cheque from the local ASDA, as part of their Christmas giving appeal. The lovely team at Nationwide bank Bedford managed to collect £400 in donations from kind members of the general public and Neville’s Funeral Directors in Luton donated £500 to the Amicus Trust Christmas appeal. We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thankyou to all the people and organisations that have supported Amicus Trust during this incredibly difficult year, it is really appreciated.
