Swindon Local Government Branch has made a £2,000 donation towards Step Up September in aid of UNISON’s welfare charity, There for You.
The incredible donation comes after UNISON staff from across the South West ran, walked and cycled hundreds of miles throughout September.
Last week, UNISON’s COVID-19 response fund re-opened for applications. Grants of up to £500 are available for UNISON members experiencing financial difficulty as a result of the ongoing pandemic.
Karla Bradford, UNISON Branch Secretary for Swindon Local Government Branch said:
“There for You has been a vital lifeline for many UNISON members over the past few months. We are just delighted to be able to support them with this donation.
“We know all too well the financial challenges the COVID pandemic has brought for many families in Swindon and across the UK.
“We would encourage anyone experiencing financial worries to get in touch about There for You’s COVID response fund.”
