Did you know Prince used to secretly buy people solar panels?
Thanks to you, we're installing free solar panels on organisations fighting for the causes he believed in. Thank you.
But shouldn’t all suitable buildings have solar? We're telling the government that all suitable new buildings should have solar panels fitted as standard.
Where the solar is going
A dance education initiative right in the heart of Welsh coal country. They've recently taken over a local theatre which they'll be making into a community hub.
A community space in Glasgow supporting bike repair training for new migrants, a food collective run by migrant women, and a girls rock summer school.
The only community centre in Ryde, Isle of Wight. They have a recording studio and rehearsal space - alongside fitness and wellbeing classes and Men in Sheds.
An LGBT+ helpline that’s supported millions of people - 30,000 callers a day - since their phones started ringing back in 1974.
A food bank, community kitchen (and more) that's provided emergency food aid to 10,000+ people and trained under 25s in basic cookery skills.
A community-led horticultural project that helps everyone to enjoy the benefits of plants and nature - including people who have learning or mental health difficulties.
What you're saying
Prince spent his life supporting good causes. But we only found out about it after he died.
