COVID -19 FUNDRAISING FOR WHISH
The current situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) has had a significant impact on the services that WHISH is able to offer to our members. As a charity we are committed to providing support to our members as best as we currently can, whether that is via email, Facebook or on the phone during these challenging times.
During these unprecedented times, we must consider the financial implications from the virus and the damaging impact on WHISH. There is no doubt that the situation we find ourselves in will have a detrimental effect on our finances, with WHISH being set to lose a substantial amount of income from Funders and more so - fundraising. This could, in the long term, challenge the Charity’s sustainability, especially as we need a minimum of £2000 per month to operate. We hope that the local community will continue to support WHISH during these uncertain times in any way they are able.
