Micro-donations to combat Coronavirus – a fundraiser from Pennies

Between April and September 2020, Pennies ran its own fundraising campaign to support communities most affected by coronavirus.  We raised money for two key appeals – National Emergencies Trust’s Coronavirus Appeal and NHS Charities Together’s COVID-19 Urgent Appeal – through our Facebook fundraiser and JustGiving campaign, raising over £8,00 in total.

100% of the funds raised went to charity – with the money being split equally between the two charities to support their vital work. A huge thank you to everyone who donated, no matter how big or small, you made a difference.

How your pennies count

We know how powerful a small donation can be. No matter how much you gave, you are making a positive, life-changing difference to those most affected by coronavirus, and the people caring for them.
