• Covid-19 : Donations

    My name is Danny Barnes and I am the CEO of Acknowledging Youths CIC and AY Group Community Services CIC.

    I am looking to raise £250,000 to help me raise money to offer support to Covid-19 victims as known the vulnerable and elderly residents of United Kingdom, and the NHS staff in the hospitals.

    During the coronavirus pandemic, UK vulnerable residents need help.

    The coronavirus has already fundamentally changed the way we live. It's an anxious and upsetting time, and while the primary concern is health, our financial wellbeing is also important.


    We ask you to support us and our project. Just a small donation of £10 can help me reach our goal or even to give some non-perishable goods or food will be more than appreciated.

    Your donation will be spent, in one hand, on the purchase of food and essentials for UK residents and the NHS staff in the hospitals and, in another hand, we plan to provide online services to our customers who must self-isolate due to this uncertain time.


    We have been organising food parcels for our vulnerable residents. And this has stretch out to all our boroughs. We are ringing over 600 elderly and vulnerable residents across the community. We provide them help in case they need food and essentials supplies or if they are over 70 and isolated or if they have a health concern.

    We are here for them even if they have any concern about a family member, friend or neighbour. We all want to help each get through this difficult time. We also have a lot of opportunities for them to get involved as a volunteer with us.

    Also, we are solicited by a lot of hospitals to deliver food and essentials parcels to the NHS staff who are working day and night to save lives. The food packs are containing breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks and they will be delivered with the help of our delivery service.


    AY has a team of volunteers to ensure that the food parcels reach UK most vulnerable people doorstep and the hospitals during the coronavirus crisis.

    We are determined to do everything we can to support our NHS staff to ensure medics are well fed as they work long hours and the residents.

    Dear Danny


    As a key supporter of the Royal Free Charity during the Coronavirus crisis, I wanted to thank you for your incredibly kind donation of supermarket items to our staff and to let you know about the broadcast of a two-part documentary, Hospital: fighting COVID-19.

    Filmed over three weeks at the Royal Free London during the peak of pandemic, it will air on BBC 2 at 9pm on Monday and Tuesday, the 11th and 12th of May. A trailer for the programme has started to run across all BBC channels too.

    The documentary will bring home powerfully the value of the enormous support you have helped provide to staff looking after our desperately ill patients at Barnet and the Royal Free hospitals. The episodes include the treatment of the last patient to have a transplant at the Royal Free Hospital before the service was paused and the care of a 73-year-old at Barnet Hospital who is seen struggling with low oxygen levels.



    I hope you will watch the documentary and feel assured that your generosity could not have been better placed. Your support is ensuring that the needs of staff at the Royal Free and Barnet hospitals will continue to be met, and, on behalf of the Royal Free Charity, I would like to thank you for enabling us to do this.

    We will, of course, keep you updated on our progress and the impact of your support. But if you would like to discuss any aspect of this, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

    In the meantime, thanks again for your truly wonderful support during this critical and challenging time.


    With best wishes
