There is significant need in our communities which is often overlooked. Thousands of elderly people and families are struggling with the sharp rise in living costs and utility bills leaving them facing big challenges this winter, and unsure of where to turn. Winter is hard on many of us, but for some it is truly a challenge to survive. We know that the need is greater and therefore we encourage people to give in order to help people in their local area.


By making a donation of up to £200, the equivalent of the Winter Fuel Allowance, you will be supporting our older people to combat rising energy prices and significantly reduce excess winter deaths. All donations will go directly to those in need to help pay fuel bills, pay for repairs and help keep them active and healthy.
