Around £11 million has been raised by The National Emergencies Trust (NET) Coronavirus Appeal in just one week.
The appeal was launched on 18 March in partnership with the British Red Cross, which manages the donations. Donations can be made online at the organisation's website.
Local charities wishing to benefit from the fund should apply through their Community Foundations rather than directly through NET.
To contact the Nottinghamshire Community Foundation, call 01623 620 202 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit the dedicated page for the NET Coronavirus Appeal programme on the Nottinghamshire Community Foundation website here.
There is no set Closing Date for applications. Awards will be made on a first come first served basis depending on the availability of funding and extent of immediate need. You may wish to make an enquiry first to check the latest status of grants.
