Islington Mutual Aid St. Mary is one of thousands of grassroots groups that have formed across the UK since the start of the COVID-19 crisis. Our mission is simple: to harness the kindness and dedication of the local community to help care for the most vulnerable in society and to support one another, including those self-isolating, in these challenging times. We are not a formally registered charity, aid organisation or government-backed body — just a group of people who have come together to help those around us in a time of need.
All donations collected via this page will be used to help vulnerable local people. This can cover for example paying for someone’s shopping or medication, a phone top up or even a contribution to rent if necessary.
More details on spend and activities will be provided as the crisis develops. At this point we are also not sure if we will actually require funds at all, but as we have had people in the community offer donations, we set up this page.
Should we collect more money than we can put to good use, we will donate leftover funds to local charities once the crisis is resolved. Thank you for your kind donations.
