The restrictions in response to Covid 19 have again created a very difficult environment for people living in our shire with financial and emotional stress exacerbated by the pandemic.
The Daylesford Foundation continued to provide ongoing financial support for local charities, The Good Grub Club and Hepburn Regional Community Cheer. We also provided seed funding to Healthy Lunch Kitchen and in total we provided $32,596 in food assistance for the financial year.
Almost $95,000 was distributed in requests for assistance that directly and positively affected over 700 people in the shire. The scope of support included emergency vehicle repairs, medical appliances, household goods, household maintenance, musical instruments, food vouchers and computer hardware and software.
The Daylesford Foundation has also been instrumental in mobilising other groups and individuals to provide practical “in kind” support that extends the financial contribution.
The Daylesford Foundation would like to thank our partners who assist us in our endeavours to support people living in difficult circumstances to lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
