Charity Match

The COVID-19 virus and subsequent lockdown has put added pressure on Charities and Non-profit organisations around the world.

Splash Projects and Crossroads’ Global Hand would very much like to support our partner Charities and Communities at this time by connecting them with our Corporate Partners – both Businesses and Individuals, who might be able to help. This could be in the form of much-needed Goods e.g. food, clothes, computers or furniture, or Professional Services such as strategic management advice, help with recruitment and personnel, financial or logistical advice, or new facilities such as a garden, play provision or classrooms.
