The Oddfellows’ Coronavirus Emergency Appeal

If you are vulnerable and need help, it is vital that someone's there for you, especially during a time of national crisis. The Oddfellows has launched its Coronavirus Emergency Appeal, in support of The Silver Line and the National Emergencies Trust.

The Society, alongside its national network of Branches, is fundraising to support the incredible work of The Silver Line, whose free, round-the-clock helpline and befriending services are currently under a considerable amount of pressure. With older people among those hardest hit by the pandemic, it’s never been more important for its teams to be there as a listening ear. Find out more about The Silver Line.

We are also backing the National Emergencies Trust’s Coronavirus Appeal, which is raising money to help keep numerous grassroot organisations and charities going, and to keep providing critical support during this crisis. Find out more about the Trust’s Coronavirus Appeal.
