What is this? This is a Mutual Aid Fund available to alleviate the profound household needs of those suffering because of steep increases in the cost of energy, food, and related items. In considering applications the Fund may ask for some supporting evidence of hardship and award grants in the form of specified vouchers where more appropriate.
Why? Some of us will be receiving financial assistance from government sources that they may not need. Mutual aid is based on one part of a community with means, helping other parts of the community in need. Community in this context will be parts of Hull and the East Riding and specifically include Cherry Burton and surrounding villages.
Is This Legitimate? This fund will be run by St Michael's Church in Cherry Burton and we can provide assurance that: All donations will be allocated in entirety to meet the needs of individuals and families; there will be no administration costs Authentic cases of serious hardship are identified through direct contact with local vicars and other community leaders, using tried and tested formula utilised by the charity Acts 435. The fund will not build up significant reserves but seek to distribute as quickly as possible A record of donations (anonymized) will be issued periodically The need for the continuation of the Fund will be reviewed annually All requests for help will be wholly confidential
