Although the lockdown has eased, the economic impact of the pandemic is continuing to be felt by many residents. Your donations can make a difference.

We would like to thank everyone who donated to our emergency response at the Community Support Centre. This fund has now closed but we continue to with local partners and volunteers to make sure residents, particularly vulnerable residents and those self-isolating, continue to receive the help they need.

Some of the ways you can help are listed below.

Support a food bank

UK food banks saw an 89% increase in need in April 2020 compared to April 2019 so your donations are appreciated. 

This is how you can donate food and toiletries to local food banks:

  • At the drop-off points in most supermarkets
  • Some streets, neighbourhoods and community groups are organising local collection points for their local food banks
  • Many of the food banks are holding ‘donation drive throughs’ around the borough on specific dates

To find out more about how you can help or to donate funds to a food bank visit the websites below or follow them on social media:

The Community Fund for Reigate & Banstead

If you would like to make a general financial donation, we recommend the Mayor’s charity, The Community Fund for Reigate & Banstead.

The Fund provides support to local projects which tackle need, disadvantage, and community participation across the borough. All grants from the Fund are now being made specifically to local charities and projects that need financial support to provide their services to assist with the Coronavirus response.
