Barefoot Entrepreneur Calls For Barclays £290m Fine Redistribution Through Community Foundations

Community activist, Robert Ashton, used his Guardian professional blog last week to call for the Barclays £290 million fine to be used towards doing good in our communities. By allocating the money to Community Foundations, local need would be assessed and good causes who get overlooked by national funding could receive the money they desperately need.

He said, “Using [Alison] Seabrooke's figures, the Barclays fine could help more than 68,000 struggling voluntary and community organisations. It could give support and hope to millions and most importantly for the government, clearly demonstrate that they can seize opportunity and put society's most vulnerable people first.”
