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.
The fund has not been designed to support national campaigns and are not expecting to support any central NHS fundraising initiatives which are being funded and highlighted already.
The selected charities have all been contacted and their stories about how the fund will help their cause will be posted below as we get feedback from them. At this stage we are not accepting applications or expressions of interest and will be announcing the causes that will benefit from this fund in due course.
