#Greggs4Good coronavirus response


Over the last few weeks we have awarded over £350,000 in emergency funding to schools, local charities and community groups to help alleviate some of the stress caused by the devastating impact of the COVID-19 outbreak. We have paused our Local Community Projects Fund and North East Core Funding while we have distributed this much-needed emergency funding which has also given us the time to find out more about the emerging needs of our communities.

Our strategic plan remains true to our purpose of building stronger, healthier communities. We will continue to support children and families with funding through our breakfast club schools and over the next few weeks and months we will be working with organisations we have funded previously and who we have identified can help us deliver our purpose by providing funding where it is needed most.

We’re still encouraging all grantees to join the ‘Greggs 4 Good’ network on Semble, and we look forward to following their progress over the coming months.
