£10 million further support for Welsh Charities from the Moondance Foundation


The Moondance Foundation Covid-19 relief fund has earmarked an additional £10 million in 2021 to distribute to Welsh charities and organisations who are supporting those struggling as a direct result of Covid.


Diane Engelhardt, Chair of Moondance said, “2020 has been a difficult year for so many people in Wales. When the pandemic hit, we immediately wanted to help and launched a Covid-19 Relief Fund. Since March 2020, we have donated £7.5 million to over 800 charities and organisations in Wales but there is still much to be done.

“The impact of Covid-19 is set to continue well in 20201 as lockdowns continue, unemployment rises and the enormous task of protecting the population through vaccination is in a full-on race against the rise in coronavirus cases.”

Charities or organisations that are making a genuine and valuable contribution to those most affected by the pandemic should contact us.
