Coronavirus Support Funding

A fund has been established to provide financial support to local organisations, charities, volunteer groups, families and individuals who have been impacted by Covid-19.

It is available to these groups and individuals who are within our area of operations; that is Fairford, Lechlade and the surrounding villages.

The fund has been generated due to the enormous generosity of The Lakes By Yoo Company and the residents at The Lakes By Yoo development. They have asked Friends of Fairford & Lechlade Communities, your local charity, to manage the fund for the community.
