THE LBDI COVID-19 Poverty Appeal


What is the LBDI COVID-19 Poverty Appeal?

COVID-19 continues to impact our world, and while we’re distancing physically, we can stand together in solidarity with those who have been hit hardest by it.

On May 4th, the JLL will be launching the LBDI COVID19 Poverty Appeal to raise awareness of the impact of COVID-19 on poverty in London, with the majority of the funds we raise going directly to support those most affected.  While this is still an emerging issue, the challenges facing those in poverty are already increasing as we see growing demands on the foodbanks and additional needs for the homeless and those in refuges. 

For 4 days, our members will be wearing a black dress or outfit as a symbol of solidarity in times of crisis; in recognition of all that London’s volunteers & essential workers are doing; and to raise funds for those working with London’s most vulnerable.  Please help us address the implications of COVID-19 and maintain the impactful programs the JLL has developed over the last 35yrs. 

Given 35 years of volunteerism and direct community work, providing help where it is needed most, the JLL is well positioned to make an immediate difference through our partners on the frontline like the Trussell Trust foodbanks, Hestia, GlassDoor and Restart.
