The family behind Krispy Kreme and Pret A Manger has pledged €1 million (around £897,600) for Holocaust survivors affected by COVID-19, with the British charity Jewish Care among its several beneficiaries.

Some €150,000 (£135,170) will go to Jewish Care, the community’s biggest social care organisation, which supports hundreds of survivors and refugees.

Other beneficiaries will include the Central Welfare Organisation for Jews in Germany, the US philanthropic organisation UJA Federation New York and Israel’s AMCHA, which offers mental health and social support to survivors in the country.

The fund aims to help organisations support survivors affected by the pandemic, whether through illness, self isolation or travel restrictions.
