Thank you for helping us to reach our target!
An online crowd-funding campaign for The Friendship Circle has surpassed its target raising an astonishing £375,183 in just 36 hours!
The charity received more than 3,200 donations during the appeal, some from as far afield as America and Israel.
Mimi Lyons, Co-founder and Operations Director of The Friendship Circle was overwhelmed by the response. ‘We are truly humbled by the amount of support we have received from the entire community and are hugely grateful to each and every donor who has helped us raise such an incredible amount of money.’
Michael Levy was actively involved in the campaign and commented ‘During Lockdown The Friendship Circle was a lifeline for our daughter Hannah. The whole team knew exactly what their members needed, using meaningful ways to communicate and provide relevant activities. Joyous celebrations over Shabbat and festivals together at home, online parties, Havdalah and virtual events, were all supported by amazing activity packs prepared with love and delivered by committed volunteers.’
The funds raised will ensure the continued provision and development of essential services for the members and secure the charity’s future which suffered a dramatic loss of income due to the inability to hold any fundraising events during COVID.
WE DID IT! WE RAISED OVER £375,000!
