Supporting the Rainy Day Trust during the Covid-19 crisis

Published: 26 March 2020 - Alex Fordham

Bryan Clover, Rainy Day Trust chief executive officer, has issued a plea to industry members to help support the charitable organisation. 

Titled, 'Donate your Commute', Clover takes up the story: "If you are following government advice and working from home, then you will be saving fuel costs.  Please donate the saving in one day's commuting costs to the Rainy Day Trust. 

"Our finances are coming under increasing strain as demand for our help increases, but donations are falling fast. We understand fully that your focus is on your business, but we need every penny to help the people that work alongside you.

To donate, visit: www.justgiving.com/rainydaytrust

You can also donate by texting: 'RAINY 5' to 70085 to donate £5. This costs £5 plus a standard rate message.
