PWCF COVID-19 Recovery Fund for vital community projects

In response to the unprecedented impact of COVID-19, The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund (PWCF) has made available £150,000 to more than 30 non-profit organizations supporting some of the most deprived communities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. PWCF’s COVID-19 Recovery Fund is enabling the organizations to deliver much needed health & wellbeing, social inclusion, education and environmental projects, and lessen the impact of the pandemic on children and young people, as well as the elderly and wider community.

Staff, friends and supporters of Turquoise Mountain around the world have come together to run and bike over 1,000 Mountain Miles, with a 30-mile bike ride through the hills of the California coast, runs along the coast of Cornwall, and through the beautiful landscapes of Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, to raise over £20,000 for The Ferozkoh Family Health Centre in Kabul.
