Keep the lights on

The people of Basildon have shown great community spirit, and a dignified resilience, through what has been a very challenging year for all. Let’s continue to pull together and let’s show our support for our casual workers, to help them to prosper in 2021.

At the Plush Restaurant in Wickford, Enes would usually have an additional ten casual staff working for him at this time of year.

Tier 4 restrictions mean casual workers across the borough have missed out on working in what would have been the busiest time of their year.

The Mayor’s Charity Appeal Trust has launched the ‘Keep the lights on’ appeal to give casual staff who aren’t eligible for formal financial support a much needed boost this festive season.
