Urgent news from Allsorts

Allsorts has always been a member charity, owned and supported by members. Our staff are committed to ensure that members views and suggestions drive the direction of the charity. They have helped us grow and develop into the many areas we now work in. Without members there would be no Allsorts.

Challenging times
Please help us with our Crisis Appeal to make sure there is still a charity when the Covid-19 emergency is behind us. There is no other way to say it – we are in a crisis. We need to raise in excess of £20,000 per month to pay bills and ensure there is a future for us.

How you can help
Thank you so much to all of you who have already donated. We are so grateful and overwhelmed with your generosity. We know that many families are worried about their own finances and we don’t want to put additional pressure on you at what is an uncertain time for everyone. If you can donate, then please give what you can.

You could always support this appeal in other ways, by holding a fundraiser or booking a digital fitness class with us.

We are still here for you
For those of you who need support during this time of fear and isolation, we are still here. Sadly we have had to transfer half the staff team to the job retention scheme, but we still have Max, Gemma, Rosa, Clarissa, Sally and myself working on behalf of Allsorts.

Do keep an eye out for all that we are offering – emotional support and fitness challenges designed to keep us physically and mentally healthy. I have just finished an Allsorts online yoga session, supporting my son to take part. I’m sure my tummy muscles will never be the same again!

I am open to all ideas and suggestions from our members. Please don’t hesitate to email me: [email protected].

Keep well and safe everyone.

Kindest regards
Jane Jones
Interim Chief Executive
