Inspired by the scale of the response, the bank expanded the programme to help a further 100 charities and as the impact of the pandemic continues to be felt, Barclays has now made a further 50 donations of £100,000 to UK charities to reach a total of 250 charities.
The fund has focused on several areas including supporting mental health tomeet the needs of communities as they emerge from the pandemic, Barclays is supporting Action Mental Health with a £100,000 donation to support its specialist counselling service.
