The fund supports causes across North Somerset, Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire and was set up in mid-March.

It hit the milestone figure in a matter of weeks, which the foundation says is thanks to the generosity and support of hundreds of fundraisers, donors and businesses.

Chief executive Sue Turner, said: “Whether it’s taking meals to the homeless, reaching out to older people or helping learning disabled people fight isolation, people are going above and beyond.”

More than £500,000 has reached 100 causes in these communities.
