Local business boosts emergency coronavirus campaign

Business News

Community groups and businesses are throwing their weight behind the campaign to raise money for the emergency community response to coronavirus.

An impressive £12,000 has been raised since the campaign went live at the start of April with the money raised going to local groups and charities in Oldham to help them continue to provide a vital response with community support.

This amount has been further boosted by one local business, Chadderton based consumer goods firm Ultimate Products, who have pledged an amazing £10,000 to the fund.

But more is needed from other businesses and residents if the target of £30,000 is going to be reached to help those most in need.

A donation can help to provide telephone advice, support and companionship for older people to prevent them from feeling isolated during self-isolation, or it could help a local foodbank to provide food parcels to more homes than ever before. By donating, you could help a community group support local people.
