Joanne Hunter, Co-Director, Grasmere Gingerbread said: “ Recently, we were delighted to make a contribution to Cumbrian Community Foundation (CCF) to assist them in the valuable work that they do in various parts of the county. In Cumbria (like everywhere else), the global Covid-19 pandemic has taken its toll on individuals, families, communities and entire towns and cities and we know Cumbria Community Foundation has been targeting resources at the people in the greatest need. It is remarkable that this year the Foundation has directly helped 58,000 Cumbrians in 2020 – more than 10 per cent of the population – and we salute that achievement. We are particularly interested that the Community Foundation is to focus on mental health, family poverty and young people and education in the future, issues that Grasmere Gingerbread® has directly supported in the past. We would urge all businesses, if they can afford to do so in these unbelievably challenging times, to support Cumbria Community Foundation. More than ever in Cumbria, we all need each other.”
