Current long term commitments
The trustees of The ALBORADA Trust were able to hold a trustees meeting in April, as a result:
An immediate grant of £200,000 was made to the Racing Foundation, who are assisting all racing charities, £25,000 was sent to the Suffolk County Community Coronavirus Fund. and £20,000 each to the Newmarket Racing Centre and the Newmarket Day Centre. After urgent consultations with Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge, arrangements were made for all ICU staff and those who support them to receive shopping vouchers of £200 each; the staff themselves nominating recipients. A further grant of £50,000 was provided as a Hardship Fund for other staff and an additional grant of £200,000 has been awarded to enable the hospital to provide, as a matter of urgency, ‘Wellbeing Rooms’ for ICU staff so that they can find moments of peace and quiet near to their units without having to de-robe. This work is being carried out now. With further grants having been made to other charities both in the UK and globally, the Alborada trust has committed £3/4m to date to help them cope with the demands being made upon them by this pandemic.
