Fusion21 are Proud to Donate a Further £100k to Help Local Charities across the UK

Fusion21 via its Foundation have donated a further £100,000 and this time it has been given to the National Emergencies Trust (NET).

Fusion21 seeks to support communities during the Covid-19 pandemic and has now highlighted the National Emergencies Trust, due to the fact it works with 46 Local Community Foundations (LCFs) across the UK. The LCFs then distribute the funding via their established community networks during domestic disasters.

The National Emergencies Trust is well positioned as a national intermediary and the fund is administered by the British Red Cross. The Trust was originally established in response to the Manchester Arena bombing attack and the Grenfell Tower tragedy in recognition of the need for a national organisation to coordinate emergency funding in times of domestic disaster.

Chris Murray, Chair of Fusion21, said:

“We are pleased to support the National Emergencies Trust whose national Foundation coverage has a strong representation in the areas where Fusion21 is active. The donation will support the Foundations during the pandemic and also help to build their resilience as we start to move towards the recovery phase.”

One of the key aims of the Fusion21 Foundation is to create a positive and sustainable social impact in the communities they work in, across the UK.

John Herriman, CEO, National Emergencies Trust:

“Thanks to incredibly generous donations such as the one from Fusion21, communities across the UK are benefiting from the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal. Since our launch in March, we have distributed more than £30 million, which supports more than 4,000 grassroots charities getting help to vulnerable people at their time of greatest need. This wouldn’t be possible without everyone’s ongoing support.”
