Thrale, the South London charity, has opened its 2020 grant programme, which will focus on grants to organisations helping with the impact of Covid.

The £50,000 in total available makes it the charity’s largest-ever programme.

Last year it awarded a total of £6,000 to organisations in Brixton and around, including:

The St Matthew’s Project, which helps children and young people from Brixton and Tulse Hill fulfil their potential through football and other activities. 

Stockwell Good Neighbours, which provides social activities for West Indian and other older community members from Brixton and Stockwell.

The Clapham Park Project, which promotes learning for young people and provides support for vulnerable residents.

The charity will donate up to £2,000 to organisations that are either promoting good health and wellbeing, or alleviating hardship caused by the pandemic.

Paul Lehmann, trustee of the charity, said: “2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for local communities across South London.

“We want to make sure that the grants we make this year are devoted to benefiting those people who have been hit most by the pandemic.”
