Henley Mutual Aid - May 2020
Transparent and open finances.
Now we must ask this very special community of ours to take another step. To look out for our vulnerable neighbours by donating to this important cause.
Each volunteer is giving up their time for free, and no money raised will be used to pay for these services. However, individual volunteers cannot afford to buy supplies for others out of their own budgets. We will facilitate payment for essentials for those who cannot.
Whilst the cafes are closed, could you donate your cup of coffee each day this week? Or perhaps your pint at the pub? Maybe you could do more than that… whatever you can afford could genuinely help a scared, isolated person to feel safe, cared for and part of our community.
We have used a 'fiscal host' for this open collective through the Social Change Agency. Henley Mutual Aid have set up a strict expenses policy for expense claims and only those who comply with the policy will be approved. This is completely transparent so everyone can see exactly what comes in and what goes out.
We aren't expecting to raise large amounts of money - this is mainly a way to reimburse people - but if we do end up with a surplus after this pandemic is over and life has returned to normal, this will be donated to local charities.
No-one involved in Henley Covid-19 Mutual Aid Group is making any money from their involvement and all money will be used for direct costs. Henley Mutual Aid is governed by a steering committee of 8 volunteers. You can reach us through our website or email [email protected] for more information.
We are working alongside many local charities and organisations, including the Food Banks, GP Surgeries, GoodSAMs, South Oxfordshire District Council, Oxfordshire All In, Oxfordshire County Council and other local charities. We look to these established organisations for support and advice first and Henley Mutual Aid is not intended to replace the food banks but to work alongside them. Please do continue to financially support local charities. For members of the community who require ongoing regular support for essentials, such as regular food parcels/boxes, we will refer to the NOMAD food bank.
*PLEASE NOTE* Donations made by debit or credit card receive a fee of 1.4%+20p (to us not you).
Donations made by Bank Transfer are FREE - meaning we receive 100% of the donation.
If you’d like to volunteer your time or skills for this work, please fill in the form on our website www.henleymutualaid.org.uk. For other urgent information please contact us on [email protected]ail.com but note we will prioritise responses to those in need of help. Thank you again for your donations and support. They will help ensure no resident is missed out or left in need during this crisis.
Help us keep our community safe during this pandemic
