Financial journalist and chair of Money Saving Expert, Martin Lewis, is giving £1m from his personal charity fund to provide grants for smaller charities, in response to the effect the coronavirus pandemic is having.
The grants would be between £5,000 and £20,000 – provided to small registered charities, or local arms of bigger charities across the UK.
In a blog post on his Money Saving Expert website, Martin said: “We face an unprecedented challenge to our health, economy, businesses, personal finance and way of life. And many of those who normally help society – our charities – are going to face similar pressures right now too.
“To try and help I'm going to release £1,000,000 from my personal charity fund to provide grants of £5,000 to £20,000 to small registered charities, or local arms of bigger charities, across the UK – to help with specific UK coronavirus-related poverty relief projects.”
Applications close at 11.59pm on Wednesday (25 March).
