About ten years ago Giving Tuesday started in the USA. It was a response to the materialism expressed in Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Over the last seven years, Giving Tuesday has been in the U.K., again a response to the materialistic thrust of the time between October and the 24th of December.
This year, the idea is for charities like One Community to join up with thousands of others and encourage people to give for a specific purpose. The hash tag to look for is #giveback2020
It gives the public a great opportunity to give back to our amazing charity that has given so much over the year of lockdowns, covid-19 and many heroes. (Like SUPER STEVE!)
Our target is to raise £5000 for our supported, accessible transport buses.
We have been running a service throughout 2020 in a COVID safe way. This has included shopping for the isolated, taking people out for essential appointments and getting day service on the go again. Our volunteers and staff have been second to none.
Once services start to re-open fully in 2021 to older, vulnerable and disabled people we want to be running services that meet their needs in the Eastleigh area.
To raise the £5000 we need your help.
