Help the local community of Mulberry School

Mulberry School for Girls a high performing girls' school serving over 1400 students and families in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Students at the school achieve very highly and progress to world class universities and competitive apprenticeship programmes. The school serves a community however where there is significant disadvantage; academically students hold their own, however deprivation is high and closure of schools places huge additional and very difficult strain on families and the community. We want to work with families to make sure that we are able to provide the support needed during the COVID-19 epidemic  particularly whilst our students are not able to attend school.  We are asking for contributions so that we can support with basic needs, funding food, sanitary and essential care products to those who need it the most. Currently, supermarket shelves are bare of many of these items and this is problematic for those who cannot stockpile.  We will not take any admin charge from this, every pound you give will fund products to go directly to families who need them the most. We are working hard with companies to source discounted products and will identify the most vulnerable families to support. GoFundMe have asked for some extra info here: My relationship to the campaign: I work at Mulberry School for Girls. I have done so for 14 years. How the funds will be spent: We will be providing food and care packs to between 180 and 300 families weekly. Our running costs will be £8,700 per Month (minimum). This fundraising effort funds our first four weeks, A food bag will contain 10-14 products to support family during this difficult time. It will contain products including rice, pasta, bread canned and other products that are difficult to source during the Coronavirus. We will supply baby products on request. Your withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the ultimate beneficiary/ies Mulberry School has established a specific bank account for the food bank. These funds will be paid directly into it and adhere to well-established financial procedures. The account and every transaction will be directly overseen and authorised by the Headteacher.
