Check your charity before donating

I have been heartened and encouraged to witness the generous community spirit that people across Mid Worcestershire have demonstrated since this crisis started hitting.

I'm so grateful to all those who have been looking out for vulnerable neighbours and friends. I also want to encourage those across Worcestershire who are able to donate, to support registered charities helping to relieve those most in need, and to be vigilant against ‘charity’ scams.

Please do use the website gov.uk/checkcharity to make sure you're donating to a legitimate cause, such as the Worcestershire Community Foundation which is a charitable trust helping to gather funds to help local charities work to help people across the County at this difficult time.
