About us

Offering small grants to people in our community who need it.

In communities like ours, we rely on each other. In fact, we’re totally dependent on each other.

Many of us are finding these times tough. Some of us are finding it harder than others. But our community is big-hearted, caring, and resourced, and we believe we can make it through to the other side of this pandemic with all of us supported.

The Solidarity Fund is offering small grants to individuals in the Machynlleth area facing financial difficulty.

We rely on ongoing donations in order to be able to continue to give support to those who need it. No amount is too small – and if you’re able to give on an ongoing basis, a regular donation makes a huge difference.


Who are we?

We are a small group of local volunteers:

  • Elena Blackmore
  • Beth Maiden
  • Laurence Tidy
  • Hannah Smith
  • Hele Oakley

We set up this fund to address growing concerns about the financial impact of coronavirus on our community. We are inspired by other small grass-roots funds including BiPandas in London, and the UK-wide SWARM fund.
