Merton Giving - Beneficiary Stories
We're delighted to have supported over 70 charitable organisations to help them survive and adapt in the most challenging of circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since we launched the Coronavirus Fund at the beginning of April, we have funded a total of 75 grants to local, charitable organisations. The stories from the beneficiaries of the fund help bring to life the positive impact that your donations make in supporting our local community.
