Where the funds will go

Where the funds will go

The Albion as One fund has specifically been set up to assist with Sussex based charities and causes that are helping our communities during this Covid-19 crisis.

The club’s players and staff have selected a number of charities based in Sussex, including charities for hospices, sick children, domestic abuse victims, bereavement care, foodbanks, homeless support and health workers – who will all benefit from the fund – alongside a contribution of approximately 20% to Albion in the Community. 

They are all charities hardest hit by the global coronavirus pandemic, and we have begun distributing funds to help communities in the city of Brighton & Hove and across our county.
