I hope you’re keeping well and safe.
First of all, I wanted to say a massive thank you for your heartfelt comments. It's so lovely to see the power of our community coming together to support each other. Absolutely amazing.
We want to make sure that you see the impact we are making together, both for members and communities around the UK. So, we will come back to this thread from time to time to share the incredible numbers or stories that members' generosity have made possible.
goodybank launched on Monday 20th April and even though we are talking about only a few days, it’s incredible to see how much members have raised for each other. Have a look below to see how amazingly supportive you have been in such a short time:
Donations in week one by members to support other members: £5,830*
Donations in week one by members to support nationwide communities: £3,066*

We see the same heartwarming picture if we look at the Neighbourly side as well. We have already distributed £25,000 to communities across the UK in need of support right now, and this is how it has been used to help people across the UK so far:

We’ve always believed that together with our members, anything is possible and this is just another demonstration of how true that is. A massive thank you for joining us in making sure we are able to support as many people as possible during this hard time.
This is just the beginning and I am sure that very soon we will have even more stories to share with you all.
For now, though, take care and have a lovely weekend.
