Alverstoke Parish Winter Hardship Fund

The PCC and The Alverstoke Trust have collaborated to create a fund for the relief of hardship and hunger in Gosport this winter.  The fund of about £6000 is humbly offered through experienced local organisations and agencies who are serving those who are struggling the most with Covid-19 related hardship and those who are homeless.

If you would like to support this hardship fund then gifts are welcome in order to ‘match fund’ the grant in place from the PCC and The Alverstoke Trust.  In this way we can help relieve the hardship, hunger, fear and distress of many more people through this difficult pandemic winter.


Thank you.
