Holiday break 2021
Published on December 7, 2021 by Janani Paramsothy

Dear neighbours,

The normal schedule of payments will be disrupted over the holiday period as the fund administrators and our accounting service take a break.

There will be no payments from Monday 20th Dec - Monday 3rd Jan.

If you have not yet applied to the fund this month, and are thinking of doing so, please note that the fund is operating a waiting list as the amount of money in the fund is less than the value of our grants. 

We did not "deprioritise" neighbours who had applied four times or more this month due to a donation from the Basic Income Conversation - but we will be back to this from next month onwards. Please remember it is always first come first served otherwise and you can still apply from the 1 January (though fund admins won't be online to approve your applications until the 3rd). 

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions - [email protected]

Please also do continue promoting the fund to others who may need it, or who may be able to contribute. We are only able to keep going with the support and solidarity of our community. 

The Newham Solidary Fund wishes you all a joyful and restful holiday season and a happy new year.

Hi Charley,

We replied to you on Monday. Please can you check your messages. We are still waiting for you to submit proof of address dated within the last six months. We also have no funds left so we will not be able to fund anyone else this month unless more donations come in.

Best wishes,
Rebecca
