Alpkit Foundation are now prioritising their funds to support projects that demonstrate an immediate impact on those affected by the Covid-19 virus crisis.

Examples of projects they will consider:

  • Supporting food banks and increasing the number of meals on wheels deliveries to support the elderly.
  • Supporting those who are homeless or in temporary accommodation.
  • Bringing adventure indoors and overcoming the obstacles that prevent us benefiting from going outdoors.
