This new website has been launched to help the business community during the coronavirus outbreak.
The site is born from the idea that Crawley residents want to support Crawley based businesses and charities, but often don't know how. It gives a central point to let our community know how to do this by leaving a positive review online, purchasing a voucher to be used once the business reopens, or even donating their usual commute costs to a good cause.
