This month's epsiode looks at the issue we’re all facing: the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to coronavirus restrictions, we've had to shake up our usual format. This month, rather than our usual panel of guests, features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney and editor Emily Burt chat about the challenges thrown up by the outbreak.
They look at the #EveryDayCounts campaign, which is asking the government to give urgent, meaningful financial support to charities that have been affected by the virus, but are also on the front line of responding to it.
And we will also be bringing you some of the good news stories we’ve heard over the past couple of weeks, in an effort to chase away the coronavirus blues.
- The number of volunteers who have signed up to support the NHS and those in their communities since the outbreak began
- The fantastic, supportive response of funders to the crisis
- The Blurt Foundation's Twitter hashtag #SeekingSunshine, which has been brightening our days
- #SmallButVital charities such as the Berkshire-based Dingley’s Promise, which supports children under the age of five who have additional needs and disabilities, the anti-bullying charity Cybersmile and the pet charity Blue Cross, which has donated mechanical ventilators to NHS hospitals that are tackling coronavirus
- Morrisons supermarket pledging to hire up to 500 Marie Curie and Clic Sargent charity shop staff who had their stores shut down because of the pandemic.
