The 1MC (£1 Million Challenge) project was launched in 2020 in response to the devastating effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Its main objective was to challenge the community to raise 1 million pound to support and safeguard the ramifications of COVID-19: death, unemployment, business closures, mental health issues, isolation were just a few of the issues faced by the African Community in a sever way. We know that a million pounds is nowhere near what is required but it is a start. Unprecedented times called for us to dig-deep and pull together as a community to help each other through fundraising. Indeed, Thomas Moore raised millions in a short period of time to support the NHS.
Captain Sir Thomas Moore, more popularly known as Captain Tom, was a British Army officer and fundraiser who raised money for charity in the run-up to his 100th birthday during the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID-19 was a wake up call to many of us, forcing us to rethink and reevaluate how we deal with emergencies and mitigate future risks. The work of this project is ongoing with a roadmap, plans and strategies put in place to not only achieve its objectives but to exceed them! Contact us if you would like to assist in any way.
