With a number of charities asking people to donate what they save on transport and coffees during the pandemic, The Spag Bol Project is now asking the nation’s “accidental savers” to donate and support people who are struggling to feed themselves during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Spag Bol Project (opens in a new tab) launched last year and encourages people to reduce their spend and consumption of food and drink and then donate the savings to help those without a home. It has now developed an algorithm to identify and contact up to 1 million households that have been highlighted in a poll of consumers’ changing financial situations since the pandemic began.
Its aim is to persuade people to make a donation from money they save to help its partner organisations, which include The Salvation Army and Centrepoint, and support those most in need.
