Sussex Crisis Fund

Laurie McMillan of The Bevy community pub. The Bevy has converted into a food delivery and social isolation service for the period of the coronavirus crisis. This grant from the Sussex Crisis Fund will enable it to give local people access to nutritious food, alongside safe and responsible personal interaction.

The Sussex Crisis Fund has been set up to support community and voluntary sector organisations in Sussex who are leading efforts to support people most affected by the coronavirus outbreak. It has been primarily designed to help fund the urgent needs facing communities and to support for
organisations with funding needs to enable them to adapt and respond to the crisis.

The fund has been kick-started with generous donations from many of our donors and fund holders, including the Argus Appeal Fund and American Express. In addition, it includes funding from the National Emergencies Trust national appeal.
